Computational Fluid Dynamics Simulation of the dynamics of a tilting disc heart valve prosthesis during the opening and fully open phases

The study of the hemodynamics is an important component in the design and validation of artificial heart valves. The removal of natural valves and their replacement by artificial valves may considerably alter the physiological flow. This necessitates an extensive verification and validation process involving in-vivo, in-vitro and in-silico models. The pulse… (More)
