A finite element model of the tensional state of the human and canine diaphragms
The static aspects of the diaphragm under Full Residual Capacity (full lung deflation) were studied. The membrane equations were used to describe the diaphragm. Based on the description, a finite element program was written ...
Nonlinear model of external respiration
A mathematical model of the external respiratory system is presented which integrates component models of airway mechanics and gas exchange at the pulmonary capillaries. The respiratory system is lumped into: (1) a conducting ...
Mathematical modeling of the sinoatrial node cell in the rabbit heart
A mathematical model has been developed for the rabbit sinoatrial node (SAN) cardiac pacemaker cell, that is based on experimental results from whole-cell voltage clamp and action potential studies on single enzymatically-isolated ...
Ventricular interaction in a closed-loop model of the canine circulation
A mathematical model of the dynamic interaction between the ventricles over a complete cardiac cycle is presented. The ventricles are modeled as a three-walled system, each of which is individually characterized by a ...
