Computational Science and Engineering Development of computational models for the support and optimization of metallic print. It is working on the writing of a project Horizon 2020.

Reference People: Ernst Rank, Stefan Kollmannsberger

Numerical Analysis & Scientific Computing: Collaboration on the issues of the fluid dynamics simulation in blood vessels, in particular in cases of aneurysms and aortic dissections on patient-specific geometries. With the group of Prof. Veneziani the iCardioCloud project, funded by Regione Lombardia and Cariplo Foundation, is ongoing.

DiCam is a no-profit organisation, born from a collaboration between local SMEs, University of Exeter, TNO, The National Aerospace Laboratory, schools and 3D Print Lab in the Netherlands. 3D Print Lab is located at Gate 2 and it deals with the application of additive manufacturing technologies within the Aerospace Campus. The technological equipment for prototyping is of high quality and includes a printer EOS P396 and an SLM 280HL. The goal of the collaboration is based on mutual support and sharing for research activities on prototyping technologies.

The aim of the collaboration is the realization, through 3D printing, of pancreatic prototypes with tumor mass characterization. The objectives are on the one hand the development of an algorithm for the detection of tumor mass (in phase of clinical validation) to evaluate the eligibility of intervention and the other hand the prototyping of the final model to facilitate the planning phase intervention, high complexity.
