Parameters
 k []: float
Nonlinear exponent
 p_ref [Pa]: float
Reference pressure for which hold p(V_ref) = p_ref
 V_ref [m^{3}]: float
Reference volume for which hold p(V_ref) = p_ref
Signals
 V [m^{3}]: array

 p [Pa]: array
Pressure inside the Bag
Bag
The Bag module is introduced to simulate the effects of the pericardium on the heart. It applies an external pressure on the enclosed cavities. This pressure is dependent on the total volume of all cavities in the Bag, and is given by
(1)\[p(V) = p_{ref} \cdot \left({\frac{V}{V_{ref}}}\right)^k\]
