This paper presents a model-based representation of the heart shape, and dynamics. The left ventricle (LV) of the heart is constructed as a mathematical model, close to the shape of actual LV. The model is made suitable for simulating the deformation of the heart during the cardiac cycle. A pseudo stress and strain analysis are conducted on the ventricular myocardium, and visualized. The visualization software is capable of simulating the conditions of a diseased heart. The interactive model and software implementation is useful for wide range of simulation studies that can be integrated with this virtual model that can help in fields like clinical treatment planning, manufacture of artificial heart, study of heart diseases etc.
