Abstract

Blood flow simulation was conducted for the peripheral centrifugal pump of the artificial heart by use of numerical methods. Flow parameters were examined for the destruction of blood morphological elements, the results were compared with literature data. The learned lessons led to changes of the pump geometry, then further simulations for different constructional variants were carried out. The results of calculations led to choosing the best structural solution for heart pump and follow-on conclusions on what kind of changes may improve the flow parameters and reduce the risk of destruction of blood elements.
