Numerical simulation of arterial blood flow.

by Hunter, Peter

Abstract (Summary)
The equations governing the flow of blood in a nonlinear viscoelastic artery are formulated and solved numerically with a finite difference technique. Flow through branching arteries and the interaction between the left ventricle and aorta are also considered.
