In this talk, we present a novel computational model of the blood flow dynamics in the whole human heart. The model accounts for different physical processes - cardiac electromechanics, blood flow dynamics, valve dynamics, and vascular flows - and is able to deliver detailed simulation of blood flows in the ventricles and atria, other than meaningful biomarkers, through a computationally efficient framework. We also show that the integration of different physical processes in a fully coupled framework is a crucial factor to simulate different cardiac pathological scenarios.
