Blood flow analysis in arteries with atherosclerosis

Arif Masud, Mannan Masud

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This paper presents a space-time finite element formulation of the Navier-Stokes equations for modeling of the transient pulsatile flow of blood through large arteries in the cardiovascular system. The formulation is shown to be stable for a wide range of Reynolds number flows. A sophisticated mesh moving technique is presented to account for the distensibility of the artery walls and thus the movement of the fluid domain. Numerical results are presented to show the generality of the proposed methodology.
