The CARITRO Project

Computer simulation of blood flow in the intra/extra cranial venous system in humans with multiple sclerosis and the CCSVI condition Summary and aims of the research programme This research programme is motivated by the recently proposed association between multiple sclerosis (MS) and a vascular anomaly termed chronic cerebro-spinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) by Zamboni and collaborators. …

Shock-Capturing Methods for Free-Surface Shallow Flows

Toro E F., Wiley and Sons Ltd, Chichester, 2001, 314 pages. The first of its kind in the field, this title examines the use of modern, shock-capturing finite volume numerical methods, in the solution of partial differential equations associated with free-surface flows, which satisfy the shallow-water type assumption (including shallow water flows, dense gases and …
