Numerical simulation of the turbulent flow field distal to an aortic heart valve.

Abstract

A numerical technique is described which simulates the turbulent flow through a aortic Jellyfish valve, for two volumetric flow rates of 15 and 26 l/min representing peak systole flow. The steady incompressible Navier-Stokes equations written in three-dimensional (3-D) format are solved iteratively using a computational fluid dynamics code (Bio-FL). The… (More)
