The natural frequencies of microbubble oscillation in elastic vessels.
A theoretical model for the dynamics of a bubble in an elastic blood vessel is applied to study numerically the effect of confinement on the free oscillations of a bubble. The vessel wall deformations are described using a lumped-parameter membrane-type model, which is coupled to the Navier-Stokes equations for the fluid motion inside the vessel. It is shown that the bubble oscillations in a finite-length vessel are characterized by a spectrum of frequencies, with distinguishable high-frequen...Expand abstract
