Abstract : This document is a collection of information from the scientific literature that is relevant to the modeling of sound transmission in the human thorax. It contains data on geometric distances from points on the chest wall to the sites of sound generation within the heart and coronary arteries. The spectral content of the sound is also discussed. The types and thicknesses of tissues along the direct path for sound transmission are identified and a description of the viscoelastic tissue properties of the thorax is provided.
