Occurring without an associated alteration in volume, as when, in early ventricular systole, the muscle fibers initially increase their tension without shortening so that ventricular volume remains unaltered.

v,i,[phi]] is the isochoric heat capacity of zone 'i' in the function of the crank angel, mi is the mass of the zone.
The mathematical model associated to the vortex phenomena is the 3D version of the widespread isochoric two-dimensional flow [1]
A standard combustor was used for the isochoric combustion and cooling of compositions A-100 and A-300:
This is followed by an isochoric compression (process 2 [right arrow] 3).
The device is intended for use on the fast variable inner pressure recordings but not intended in the measurement of heat released through isochoric combustion.
The strain energy function is separated into isochoric and isostatic strain energies, [[PI].
The pressure then experiences isochoric decay, and hence the rate of the pressure decay is expected to be lower than that before the punch.
Also, all are valid under the assumption of isochoric and isotropic deformation.
43) is relatively high, we assume isochoric deformation (traceless velocity gradient).
In the first case there is no separation of the stress into isochoric and volumetric parts, but in the second case the deformation is separated into pure isochoric and volumetric terms.
In the tension test, the effective strain [Epsilon] is assessed from the radial strain at the location of minimum cross section under the assumption of isochoric deformation, through the relation (15, 16)
