The field modelling language FieldML is being developed as a standard for modelling and interchanging field descriptions in software, suitable for a wide range of computation techniques. It comprises a rich set of operators for defining generalized fields as functions of other fields, starting with basic domain fields including sets of discrete objects and coordinate systems. It is extensible by adding new operators and by their arbitrary combination in expressions, making it well suited for…

Issues of field representation for these processes and the transformation of fields into graphical primitives for visualising models of the heart are discussed.

Computational Mechanics of the Heart

The orthotropic properties of the passive tissue are described here by a “pole–zero” constitutive law, whose parameters are derived in part from a model of the underlying distributions of collagen fibres, based on the observations of the fibrous-sheet laminar architecture of myocardial tissue.
