Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Model (CPM)
Models posted in the repository are in CPM Format. A CPM consists of image data, anatomic model, mesh, boundary conditions, simulation results, and a summary document.
CPM File Format
No widely adopted standard exists for exchanging cardiovascular models for simulation. To facilitate exchange of computational models, a simple XML based file format has been developed with a corresponding specification document.

To demonstrate the utility of the CPM format, a free application (cpmViewer) has been developed to view models created in CPM format. Click on the image below to see the cpmViewer tutorial video in flash player.
