## Abstract

We discuss two significant problems in computational hemodynamics. First, we introduce a new physiologically-based outflow boundary condition for hemodynamics under general transient regimes. The approach relies on the computation of the impedance of vascular trees; its advantages will be illustrated through both mathematical analysis and numerical experiments.

Second, we will address the issue of model calibration. In particular, we will show how the physiological character of our approach greatly reduces the need for parameter calibration in patient specific simulations.
