Computational Round Robin #1 was an international effort to assess the state of the art in biomedical computational fluid dynamics. We devised a benchmark standard model of a generic medical device, consisting of a nozzle with a conical change in diameter at one end of the throat, and a sudden change at the other end. We asked the CFD community in 2008-2009 to run a set of simulations under given flow conditions. We also performed experimental validations of flow in the nozzle for comparison. This website provides information on the study, the nozzle specifications, the raw data, as well as reports as they are generated. All the data will eventually be provided in this website.
