Title: Design & fabrication of an apparatus to simulate the dynamic pressure of human heart
Authors: Zheng, Jinming

Abstract: The human body undergoes extreme loadings on a daily basis - whether it is from running, jumping rope, or shoveling snow off the walk. The majority of the time, injury does not result from these activities. However, as a person becomes older, or if a person’s health is compromised through disease, the human body cannot respond as efficiently to these daily challenges. When discussing loads and injury, many do not think about injury to the skin and its underlying tissues. Just like we are operating machine, in order to keep the system operating, every component serves a specific function. just like a mechanical system, there are valves, filters, wiring and biological pumps. . Later in this paper, there will be introduction about design and fabrication process in this project. We will also discuss the project detail of measurement on dynamic pressure. Thus, a mechanical human heart is fabricated and hopes to provide accurate date during experiment to improve the human lifespan.
