Development of the VHP-Female CAD model including Dynamic Breathing Sequence



Mathematics, physics, and computer science are combined to create computational modelling, which studies the behaviors and reactions of complex biomedical problems. Modern biomedical research relies significantly on realistic computational human models or “virtual humans”. Relevant study areas of computational human models include  electromagnetics, solid mechanics, fluid dynamics, optics, ultrasound propagation, thermal propagation, and automotive safety research. The Visible Human Project® (VHP)-Female v. 4.0 – a new platform-independent full body electromagnetic computational model, along with Dynamic Breathing Sequence, is developed.
