The aim of this study is to examine the interaction between two mild atherosclerotic proliferations spaced apart by a distance S by analyzing their influence on flow structure, pressure drop and stress field in an arterial vessel under pulsatile flow conditions. This has been achieved numerically by employing a time accurate, cell centered finite volume method in solving the Navier-Stokes equations governing the 3D unsteady flow dynamics in a conceptual model of an multiply constricted arterial… CONTINUE READING
