An experimental study of the flow-induced mass transfer distribution in the vicinity of prosthetic heart valves.

Abstract

An experimental study of the flow-induced mass transfer distribution in the vicinity of a model disk valve and a ball valve was conducted using electrochemical techniques. Reynolds numbers ranged from 1000 to 6000, which are characteristic of physiologic conditions. Local instantaneous and time average data are presented. It was found that the flow-induced… (More)
