Most of the elastic tubes found in the mammalian body will collapse from a distended circular cross section and when collapsed may undergo flow-induced oscillations. A mathematical model describing fluid flow in a collapsible tube is analysed using the software package AUTO-86. AUTO-86 is used for continuation and bifurcation problems in systems of non… CONTINUE READING
