Mechanism design of ventricular assist device

Bumrungpetch, Jeerasit (2016) Mechanism design of ventricular assist device. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This research presents an innovative design approach for the development of high efficiency Ventricular assist device that can be used for long-term support a heart failure patient. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques were applied to the development and intensive analysis to improve the performance and reliability of the pump. From the CFD analysis, a prototype pump was created and evaluated on the mock circulation loop that simulate the human circulatory system environment to evaluate its performance in support varying heart conditions.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
