In the past decade several research groups around the world suggested several technologies that can contribute to the IUPS Physiome project [9]. We have presented the Ab stract Field Layer (AFL) and the Field Representation Lan guage (FRL) [13] as aides for describing and interchanging models, model results, and experimental data. In this paper we present a framework that uses AFL for solving spatial and temporal fields. We also present an implementation of a solver for a tissue model of the mammalian sino-atrial node. The purpose of the work presented is to show how multi-scaled models can be easily combined using AFL to produce accurate models with relatively little effort.
