Solving strategy


Update overview of the framework and its solving strategy.

Each module in the CircAdapt framework is implemented as a component. Components are the smallest objects that can be isolated in the cardiovascular system. All components together form the ordinary differential equations, which are solved using one of the implemented Solvers. Depending on the complexity of the created model, an appropriate solver should be selected with appropriate step-size.

As components use eachothers (state-)variables, equations need to be calculated in the right order. Therefore, the strategy as shown in the figure below is used.


Stability of the models is determined by the used components, their connections, and their parameterizations. Predefined Models including parameterizations are included in the framework.
