The human heart is a cardiac muscular organ which pumps blood through blood vessels to various tissues and organs for their function and also carries oxygen and other nutrients to tissues. The heart geometry is very complex and function of heart also plays major role in all kinds of animals for survival and carryout all kinds of functions. Investigating the biomechanical behaviour of a soft artificial heart model is a hard task as such things are very complicated in terms of both material properties and geometry. This work is focused on modelling of soft material heart model and study of static and Dynamic behaviour with easily operable, full-size. Theatrical heart model was designed using Creo Parametric 5.0 software. The developed model was further analyzed by the boundary condition such as Total Deformation, Principal stress, Maximum principle stresses and Elastic strain for five different case studies for various pressures at ventricle chamber and Expansion Chamber. The developed model can be used for further Numerical simulation and investigation of the artificial heart were implemented using Creo Parametric 5.0 and ANSYS, with different Bio-Compatible materials such as Silicon Elastomers, Teflon (PTFE), Polyethylene, Graphene, Carbon fiber. The biomechanical modelling and analysis of the soft artificial heart were implemented using the finite element modelling in ANSYS.
