Phie Recovery Purkinje Activation

Module: devtests.bidomain.purk_phierecv.run_wP

Section author: Anton Prassl <anton.prassl@medunigraz.at>

Test phie recovery in a slab with attached purkinje network.

Problem Setup

This example defines a minimalistic purkinje network attached on top of a thin cuboid on the domain (units in microns):

0.0  \leq x \leq 50000

0.0 \leq y \leq 30000

0.0 \leq z \leq 10000

Run a bidomain simulation in a His stimulated portion of tissue. Restart the same simulation and deactivate the purkinje system. Recover phi_e signals at the bath box corners similar to the setting of a clinical ecg recording. Investigate the influence of the purkinje system on the ecg recordings.

As with other examples, add the --visualize option to automatically load the results in meshalyzer:

./run.py --visualize

Tests

serial_BD

HIS activation within a thin cuboid. Write a statefile at 10ms and continue simulation until 30ms. Restart bidomain simulation at 10ms and finish it at 30ms. Recover phi_e at right/left arm and left leg.
