A finite-element model is used to analyze the mechanical behavior of the left ventricle. The ventricle is treated as a heterogeneous, linearly elastic, thickwalled solid of revolution. The inner third of the ventricular wall is assumed to be transversely isotropic with a longitudinal Young's modulus, transverse modulus, and shear modulus of 60 g/cm, 30 g/cm, and 15.5 g/cm, respectively. In the outer two-thirds of the ventricular wall the myocardium is assumed to be isotropic with a Young's… CONTINUE READING
