Planar Titanium Stent Design using NX Simulation

By SusanCinadr


Shannon Gott, a PhD student at Bourns College of Engineering at University of California Riverside and Andrew Jabola from Siemens Partner Saratech explain Shannon’s project about how to develop and refine titanium micromachining techniques to create nanopatterned titanium stents.


Today, stents have many problems for heart disease patients including damage artery wall lining which resulst in smooth muscle build up and blood clotting. Shannon set out to correct those issues using NX Simulation (8.5) and NX Nastran for a rationally-designed surface. A link to their presentation from the 2013 NX CAE Symposium is included in the article.
