Overall Objectives

COMMEDIA is a joint project-team of the Inria Research Center of Paris and the Jacques-Louis Lions Laboratory (LJLL) of Sorbonne Université and CNRS (UMR7598). The research activity of COMMEDIA focuses on the numerical simulation of bio-fluid flows in the human body, more specifically, blood flows in the cardiovascular system and air flows in the respiratory system. These simulations are intended to complement available clinical data with the following purpose: help clinicians or bio-engineers to enhance the understanding of physiological phenomena, to improve diagnosis and therapy planning or to optimize medical devices. The main main objectives of COMMEDIA are:

A distinctive feature of the mathematical models considered in COMMEDIA is that they often couple different types of partial differential equations (PDEs). This heterogeneous character in the models is a mathematical manifestation of the multi-physics nature of the considered problems.
