Temporal curves of LV dimensions and stresses derived by solving the simultaneous equations. The parameters in Eq. (14) adopted are mons, and mons. (A) Temporal profile of the strainless radius on the external surface of LV; (B) The internal radius change with age; (C) Percentage change between deformed and free states. They are almost identical; (D) Wall thickness that has a 5.72% thickening from young to old mice; (E) Absolute value of negative spatial mean strain in radial direction; (F) Circumferential (or meridional) stress averaged across the wall.
