The investigation presented in this paper has attempted to study, from a fluid dynamics point of view, the consequences of the presence of a stent on the flow of blood. The method adopted is mainly by numerical simulation using a finite element technique, but visualization experiments and an analytical study have also been carried out. The flow of blood is(More)
Prior to this study, a clinical prototype of a sac-type ventricular assist device (VAD) was investigated experimentally, using both flow visualisation and Laser Doppler anemometry (LDA), in order to optimise its geometry. As poor optical access precluded the experimental investigation of the flow in some areas of the prototype VAD, computational fluid(More)
The flows in a model of a ventricular assist device (VAD) were investigated numerically and experimentally for two different Newtonian test fluids. These were a blood analogue fluid and a much higher viscosity fluid. A finite volume method was employed to solve the governing equations for a three-dimensional unsteady laminar flow on a transient grid. The(More)
