Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Computer models have been widely used to simulate pressure and flow propagation in the arterial system. While experimentation involving the human arterial system is difficult and impractical, computer models offer an attractive alternative for the study of arterial hemodynamics. The purpose of the present study was to develop a computer model of the whole systemic circulation and to use this model to study pressure and flow propagation under normal flow conditions, as well as under conditions of arterial disease;The mathematical model used to describe flow in an arterial segment was based on the one-dimensional continuity and momentum equations.
