The aim of this work is the study of fluid dynamics models using the CFD software OpenFOAM, an open source software allowing meshing, manipulation, simulation and post-processing of many problems involving fluid mechanics.

The work consists of a study with OpenFOAM of a real engineering problem, namely to analyze hemodynamics in the thoracic aorta in collaboration with CIMNE (Centre Internacional de Metodes Numerics a l'Enginyeria) and LABSON-UPC (Laboratorio deSistemas Oleohidricos y Neumcos). Speciffically, the study aims to compute the shear stress that blood causes to aorta walls.
