The development of flow instabilities due to high Reynolds number flow in artificial
heart valve geometries inducing high strain rates and stresses often lead to hemolisis
and related highly undesired effects.
Geometric and functional optimization of artificial
heart valves is therefore mandatory.
In addition to experimental work in this field it
is meanwhile possible to obtain increasing insight into flow dynamics by computer
simulation of refined model problems.
We report the results of the simulation of three
dimensional fully transient physiological flows in a geometry similar to a Ca...
