Heart Valve - Heart Valve Dynamics

Heart Valve Dynamics

In general, motion of the heart valves is determined using the Navier-Stokes equation; using boundary conditions of the blood pressures, pericardial fluid, and external loading as the constraints.

Motion of the heart valves is used as a boundary condition in the Navier-Stokes equation in determining the fluid dynamics of blood ejection from the left and right ventricles into the aorta and the lung.

Famous quotes containing the words dynamics and/or heart:

    Anytime we react to behavior in our children that we dislike in ourselves, we need to proceed with extreme caution. The dynamics of everyday family life also have a way of repeating themselves.
    Cathy Rindner Tempelsman (20th century)

    Though I knit my brow,
    my gaze is fixed
    Though I check my tongue,
    this tortured face of mine
    dissolves in a smile.
    Though I drive my heart to hardness,
    my body bears
    the gooseflesh
    of desire.
    When I see that man,
    how on earth
    can my anger
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
