  • Optimized cardiac simulation as a tool to understand patient specific mechanical function 

    Odeigah, Oscar Ofordile (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-28)
    The muscular tissue of the heart is able to contract in the absence of external load. This behaviour is stimulated by a spontaneous electrical depolarization of cardiac cells in the sinoatrial node, which spreads electrical activation through the whole heart, that triggers the synchronized mechanical contraction of the heart muscle. This phenomenon, referred to as active contraction is commonly ...
  • Wind turbine and ice breaking
