A Fantastic Voyage from Computational Modelling to 3D

Published: 7 November 2018

Prof Perumal Nithiarasu (Swansea University) Title - Active and passive human digital twins in cardiovascular engineering Abstract - In this talk, potential prospects of using computational models to develop human digital twins will be discussed. The focus of the talk will mainly be on cardiovascular flows. The anticipated outcome of the such digital twins will be non-invasive diagnosis and monitoring of various cardiovascular diseases. Biography - Professor P Nithiarasu earned his BE from Madurai Kamaraj University in 1989, MTech from Kerala University in 1992, PhD from IIT Madras in 1997 and DSc from Swansea University in 2007. He moved to Swansea in 1996 to work with Professor O.C. Zienkiewicz in the area of finite element method. He became a lecturer in 2000, Senior Lecturer in 2004, Reader in 2006 and a full Professor in 2008. Currently, he is the Dean for Research Impact at Swansea University and Research Director and Deputy Head of Engineering. His research interests are mainly in the areas of computational healthcare engineering and fluid dynamics. Professor Nithiarasu received Zienkiewicz Silver Medal of ICE, London in 2002; ECCOMAS Young Investigator award in 2004 and EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship in 2006. He was appointed as a distinguished foreign scientist twice (2011, 2012) by CSIR labs in India. Professor Nithiarasu held Adjunct Professorship at Moscow Institute of Physics, Russia for three years and currently holds a visiting professor position at the University of Naples ‘Parthenope’, Italy and VAJRA Adjunct Professorship at IIT Madras, India. Professor Nithiarasu is the founding editor of the International Journal for Numerical Methods in Biomedical Engineering ( and founded now one of the important conferences in biomedical engineering, Computational and Mathematical Biomedical Engineering ( He is on the editorial boards of several computational engineering journals and conferences. Professor Nithiarasu has published nearly 200 peer reviewed articles in journals, books and conferences. He is a co-author of two books in the area of finite element method and fluid dynamics. Professor Nithiarasu is a fellow of IMechE (UK), IPEM (UK) and IMA(UK) and he has been recently elected to the fellowship of the Learned Society of Wales (UK).

Dr Rameez Ahmad Abstract - The talk will elaborate the technology behind the world’s highest resolution 3D printer that can draw lines as thin as 200 nm. A wide range of spectrum of applications will be presented showing state of the art performance of the printer in various fields of life.
