Fluid-Structure Interaction Models of an Experimental Pulse Duplicator for Simulating Bioprosthetic Heart Valve Dynamics

This study describes work to develop dynamic computer models of BHVs in the aortic test section of an experimental pulse duplicator platform... ...We compare our numerical simulations to experimental data from two similar pulse duplicators, including a commercial ViVitro system and a custom platform related to the ViVitro pulse duplicator.... ...This work represents a step towards the experimental validation of this FSI modeling platform for evaluating BHVs....
