Domain Decompos Method Sci Eng XX (2011). 2013;91:503-510. doi: 10.1007/978-3-642-35275-1_59. Epub 2013 May 9.


In this paper we describe the application of finite element tearing and interconnecting methods for the simulation of biological tissues, as a particular application we consider the myocardium. As most other tissues, this material is characterized by anisotropic and nonlinear behavior.
