Fibers generated by LDRB approach based on 4 Laplacian solves in the Cardioid project.
Triple point shock interaction on 4 elements of order 12. Note the element curvature and the high variation of the field inside the lower right element.
Visualization of the electric field generated by the electrical wave on rabbit heart ventricles during depolarization of the heart. The ventricles are embedded in a passive conducting volume. Activation of the ventricles happens through a Purkinje network. Image courtesy of Dennis Ogiermann, winner of the 2021 MFEM Workshop Visualization Contest.
