Myocardial fibers generator

Generation of myocardial fibers based on
Laplace-Dirichlet Rule-Based Methods (LDRBM).

Guided examples

Step-by-step examples drive the user from prototypical geometries to patient-specific ventricles/atria.

Arbitrary input geometries

Geometries can be imported from a variety of formats: both hexahedral and tetrahedral elements are supported.

Features

Bleeding edge

lifex is a high-performance solver for multiphysics, multiscale and multidomain problems. Its heart module incorporates state-of-the-(he)art core models for the simulation of the cardiac function and provides a robust framework for exploring new modeling challenges.

Modular

lifex heart module is bundled in different packages for the simulation of cardiac electrophysiology, mechanics, electromechanics, blood fluid dynamics and myocardial perfusion. More packages and modules will be released, stay tuned!

User-centered

lifex has been conceived with a user-centered design and aims at making in silico experiments easily reproducible and accessible thanks to an intuitive user interface, extensive documentation and user guide. Users from all backgrounds are welcome!

High-performance

lifex is written in modern C++ based on the deal.II finite element core. All the code is natively parallel and scalable up to thousands of cores. Enhanced by advanced numerical solvers, it is designed to run on diverse architectures, from laptop computers to HPC and cloud platforms.
