Design And Rapid Prototyping Of Novel Ventricular Assist Device
MetadataShow full item record
According to statistics coronary heart disease is one of the most common causes of death in the world. Heart failure patients with these diseases are the most common one. External assisted Pumps help ventricular thrust can treat this condition. Novel designed pump were developed in this research due to the expensive production techniques prices by using rapid prototyping stereo-lithography .This device were fabricated and experimental flow parameters were tested by artificial blood .The obtained experimental results were compared with software results . Significant collaboration were obtained and the minor discrepancies in the results were indicated because of the lack of impeller surface finishing defects in stereo lithography. Future research could be conducted to evaluate the parameters with other rapid prototyping techniques such as Selective laser sintering.
