Abstract

In this study, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis was applied to investigate the flow within a commercially available Biopump, BP-80 (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN, U.S.A.). The Biopump was selected because, for this purpose, a great number of experimental hemolysis data is available. The process of geometry representation and grid generation was focused on, due toits high impact on the numerical results. This process incorporated the use of three commercially available software packages for three-dimensional computer-aided design (3D-CAD), grid generation, and solving, respectively. For the purpose of validation, the head/flow characteristics of the pump were experimentally obtained and compared to the computed data. The results showed a rough agreement between CFD data and experimental data. Further investigations should cover detailed shear stress analyses and computation of other hemolysis-related quantities.
