Heart Valve Analysis

Predicting Aortic Stenosis through Simulation

Aortic valve Stenosis is a heart value disorder that narrows the aortic valve opening due to calcium build up in the leaflets. This prevents the valve from opening properly and obstructs the flow of blood causing the heart to work harder. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has the potential to allow researchers to study the condition without the need for traditional physical testing. An efficient process was required to make this possible since modeling tissue behavior, back pressure, and the interaction between tissue and blood are highly complex challenges. Altair ProductDesign led this self funded project to improve the simulation and analysis of heart condition research.
