Numerical modeling of the cardiovascular system to develop novel diagnostic methods for cardiovascular diseases
My name is Mohammadali Monfared, and I hold a master's degree in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on Energy Conversion and Fluid Mechanics from Shiraz University. I also earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a specialization in Fluid Mechanics from Persian Gulf University.
For my bachelor's final project, I studied the longitudinal free vibrations of single-walled carbon nanotubes. Additionally, I wrote my master’s dissertation on the biomechanics of heart simulation, specifically focusing on a cardiac condition known as Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM). The title of my dissertation was "Simulation of Aortic Valve and the Left Ventricle during Systole in a Beating Heart". This project involved analyzing CT scan images, utilizing the FSI algorithm, and employing various other approaches. The results of this research were published in the WSEAS Transactions on Fluid Mechanics Journal.
Additionally, before my Ph.D. studies, I collaborated as a research assistant in a group on fluid dynamics, working on drug delivery in respiratory systems. In this project, we primarily worked on precise drug delivery in the respiratory system, then created a patient-specific model via Preludium and ANSYS fluent software. Throughout my academic and research experiences, I have gained proficiency in specialized applications such as ANSYS Workbench (including Static and Transient Structural, Modal, Random Vibration, and Fluent modules), ICEM CFD, SOLIDWORKS, Mimics, and Fluent Meshing.
