Workspace Summary

Original data made available with permission of original authors. FieldML v0.4 and 0.5 representation created by Auckland Bioengineering Institute. This is a aortic coarctation model with four vessel branches in the aortic arch: namely the right subclavian artery, right common carotid artery, left common carotid artery and the left subclavian artery. The coarctation index (area ratio of the narrowest section to the normal section of the vessel) is 0.41. Clinical measurement gave a systolic peak to peak pressure gradient of 20.86mmHg, while our CFD simulation predicted a gradient of 24.04mmHg, which agreed well with the clinical data. The figure shows a coarse mesh for demonstration purpose. In the CFD calculation we used a much dense mesh with 375695 nodes, 555027 tetrahedral elements and 543720 prism elements.
