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 treated as being transient, laminar and Newtonian within a rigid section of the stented vessel. The flow is driven by an imposed pressure… CONTINUE READING
