Fiber and sheet orientations. A model synthesizing fiber and sheet data from anterior and lateral equatorial regions of the heart. The illustration on the left represent sheets at 20%, 50%, and 80% wall depth from the epicardium. Black lines on the surface of the sheets represent measured {alpha} qualitatively, with negative {alpha} values near the epicardium, values of 0° at midwall, and positive {alpha} values near the epicardium. Left margins of the sheets represent data from the anterior wall, with sheets belonging to the negative β family at 20%, to the positive β family at 50%, and to the negative β family at 80% wall depth. Right region of the sheets represent data from the lateral region, with sheets belonging to the positive β family at 20%, to the negative β family at 50%, and to the positive β family at 80% wall depth from the epicardium.
