Self-Expanding Stents

Ansys Simulation Certification


To enroll in this certification, please visit the Market space.Once enrolled, please complete the courses included in the certifications shown below.Upon completion of the certification requirements, you will be rewarded with access to a digital credential.

The buildup of plaque in arteries can restrict blood flow, and stents are an important tool in addressing arterial disease.  While there are different types of stents, this course focuses on how to model, simulate and evaluate self-expanding Nitinol stents including their deployment in a simulated artery with plaque. What is taught in this course can be applied to stents in any region of the body.In fact, the course covers many techniques that can be applied to other disciplines in the biomedical field and well beyond.
In fact, here are just some of the specific topics that will be touched upon as needed to solve our self-expanding stent simulations;
  • Geometry Pre-Processing
  • Shape Memory Alloy Material Modeling
  • Contact Modeling
  • Hyperelasticity
  • Curve Fitting
  • Newton Raphson Method
  • Design of Experiments, Response Surfaces, and Optimization
  • Fatigue of Nitinol
  • Non-Linear Stabilization
  • Cyclic Symmetry
  • Troubleshooting non-convergence
This material will be presented through engaging video based lectures, handout slides, instructor lead workshops, homework problems, and quizzes. Please join us!
