Subset of a wild-type P6 retinal plexus used to reconstruct one of our retinal blood flow models, namely P6A model. The original microscope image is segmented and the network skeleton and segment radii are computed. Based on these values, a three-dimensional volume is reconstructed assuming vessels of piecewise constant radius. (a) Original image. (b) Segmented image. (c) Reconstructed surface. Reproduced from [Bernabeu et al., Journal of the Royal Society Interface, 2014].


Rayleigh-Bénard natural heat convection between cold and hot plates, using additional lattice for heat flows and Boussinesq approximation to couple temperature and fluid flow. Temperature indicated by colour field, fluid flow by velocity streamlines. Included as a demo with DL_MESO.

HemeLB: cardiovascular modelling and simulation in UKCOMES, 29-30 May 2019

15 March 2019

UKCOMES are hosting a meeting on "HemeLB: cardiovascular modelling and simulation in UKCOMES" centred around lattice Boltzmann simulations for blood flow. As part of the meeting, researchers at UCL will introduce and demonstrate the use of their HemeLB application and the progress they have made towards simulating the whole arterial tree. There will be talks from other users of HemeLB in addition to alternative LB applications including Palabos and DL_MESO.

The meeting takes place on 29-30 May 2019 at UCL in London:

Engineering Front Building Executive Suite 103, Engineering Front Building, Torrington Place, London, WC1E 7JE, United Kingdom

Register here to attend the meeting.

A draft agenda is available here.

Organising Committee:

  • Peter Coveney, UCL
  • Derek Groen, Brunel
  • Miguel Bernabeu, Edinburgh
  • Emily Lumley, UCL

Speakers include:

  • Robin Richardson, UCL
  • Alex Patronis, UCL
  • Jon McCullough, UCL

  • Ulf Schiller, Clemson
  • Timm Krueger, Edinburgh
  • Rupert Nash, Edinburgh

With more to be announced shortly.

The UK Consortium on Mesoscale Engineering Sciences (UKCOMES) is an EPSRC grant addresses mesoscopic simulation. Such simulations require a multidisciplinary approach that needs to span a wide range of both spatial and temporal scales and necessitates close interaction between researchers in the physical and chemical sciences, mathematics, biology, engineering and computational science. UKCOMES brings together all the required expertise to make critical theoretical discoveries and translate these new concepts into software that is able to exploit today's and future high-end computing hardware developments, focusing primarily on the further development of the lattice Boltzmann method.

This event is supported by EU H2020 funded projects CompBioMed (grant agreement No 675451) and VECMA (grant agreement No 800925)
