The paper attached is, to the authors knowledge, the first attempt at accelerating cardiac mechanic using the GPU and linking this weakly coupled electromechanics to GPU accelerated electrophysiology. Using a re-use strategy, which minimizes the linear solves required, the computational expense of simulating mechanics depends strongly on the evaluation of residual. By accelerating this portion of the solve on the GPU, the mechanics solve can be seen to improve significantly. Further results are presented, which verify the effectiveness of GPU computations for electrophysiology.
