In an earlier paper, Moyers-Gonzalez et al. [J. Fluid. Mech. 617 (2008), 327-354] used kinetic theory to derive a non-homogeneous haemorheological model and applied this to simulate the properties of steady flow of blood in a tube. By adjusting the tube haematocrit to match that of the experimental fitted curve of Pries et al. [Circ. Res. 67 (1990),(More)
Evidence is presented to show that self-sustained oscillations of purely hemodynamical origin are possible in some arcade-type microvascular networks supplied with steady boundary conditions, but that in others the oscillations disappear with sufficient reduction of the time step Δt, showing them to be numerical artefacts. In an attempt to elucidate the(More)
