3. In the context of membrane analogy, when torsion is applied to a cylindrical beam with the same cross-section as the valve leaflet membrane (1208 sector) boundary, the lines of constant shearing stress coincide with these isodeflection contours of the membrane. Hence, the function u(x, y) satisfies the same Poisson equation as the Prandtl stress function (of torsion of a cylindrical beam of the same cross-section as the 1208 valve leaflet section), given by [5,6]: r2 u(x, y) ¼ À2 (2:20a) The static deflection Ws, under the pressure loading P (equal to aortic pressure minus LV pressure) and leaflet tension T, is given by [5,6]: r2 Ws ¼ P=T (2:20b) However, we need to scale u(x, y), such that its maximum value u* corresponds to the maximum static deflection Ws*, as follows [5,6]: u* ¼ max [u(x, y)] ¼ À2TWs* P (2:21) so that (1) the Ws shape contours correspond to the u(x, y) contours and (2) u(x, y) ¼ À2Ws(x, y)T=P.
