Ventricular function under LVAD support

Abstract:

This thesis presents a finite element methodology for simulating fluid–solid interactions in the left ventricle (LV) under LVAD support. The developed model was utilised to study the passive and active characteristics of ventricular function in anatomically accurate LV geometries constructed from normal and patient image data.

A non–conforming ALE Navier–Stokes/finite–elasticity fluid–solid coupling system formed the core of the numerical scheme, onto which several novel numerical ad...
