Circulatory System by Kirsten Bancroft

This is a frame from one of Bancroft's simulations of the circulatory system. It depicts the proportional blood volumes in the different parts of the circulatory system. The pressure levels are depicted in bar graphs at the side of the corresponding arterial and venous divisions. This simulation is described in Bancroft's Summer Institute report, 1993, and based on the mathematical model given by Charles Peskin in Mathematics in Medicine and the Life Sciences, Springer-Verlag, New York 1992.

How to make it: This is one of a series of VECT animation files created for Geomview.
