WP2: Bio-mechanics

The aim of this WP is to validate the existence of a shear stress threshold below which thrombosis initiates, and to improve this model when needed, by in-vitro experiments taking into account other biological parameters than platelets alone. In addition in-vivo measurements will be done to determine real values of pressures and velocities in intra aneurysms.
