Aspects of steady and pulsatile flow in branched tubes with particular reference to blood flow

Abstract:

The nature of the flow in branching blood vessels is of importance to physiologists, mainly on account of the formation of atheromatic deposits which occur frequently at sites of branching. The reasons for the occurrence of these deposits are not yet understood but it is generally agreed that the effects of fluid dynamics may well be important. There is, however, a lack of knowledge as to the detailed nature of the flow at and around branches and this study has been undertaken in order to ...
