Mechanical simulations of the change in equivalent cell length in the case of three different BCLs (left) and total time from BCL of 1000 ms to 200 ms (right) when the load applied to each ventricular cell is 10 kPa and 0.6 kPa. On the right side, arrow indicates the specific BCL which takes place at the point in which the diastolic equivalent cell length is not relaxed to 1.0 (100%)
