In this paper a three-dimensional continuum model of a mammalian left ventricle is formulated. The stresses in the model satisfy the conditions of zero stress on the outer (epicardial surface-representing) boundary. The strains of the model are obtained from the actual dynamic geometry measurements (obtained from cineangiocardiography). Since the left… CONTINUE READING
