A computational heart…in the chapel!

At the heart of…Alya red.

Alya red is a project aiming at providing a large-scale simulation of a human heart. The project is led by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center and runs on MareNostrum, a high-tech supercomputer housed in the 19th century chapel (Torre Girona)! The following video, outlining the project’s ambitions and goals, was selected as the 2012 best “Science & Engineering visualization” video by the National Science Foundation (USA) and Science magazine. Visca Barcelona!

“No man-made structure is designed like a heart. Considering the highly sophisticated engineering evidenced in the heart, it is not surprising that our understanding of it comes so slowly.”

Daniel D. Streeter Jr. – The Handbook of Physiology Section 2. The Heart (American Physiology Society). 1979
