Analysis of the Heart Motivated Anisotropic Elastic Tube

Lukáš Jiran, Marek Štefan, Karel Doubrava, Tomáš Mareš


This work deals with a deformation analysis of the thick-walled anisotropic tube whose cross-section is motivated by human heart shape. The problem is solved using the principle of the total potential energy minimum and the concept of the locally orthotropic material. The results are presented for several cases with different anisotropy and loads.
