Analysis of blood flow through a model of the human arterial system under periodic body acceleration.

Abstract

The human system may be subjected to a body acceleration deliberated for example by making subjects lie down on vibrating tables or more frequently unintentionally, for example during travel in water and land or in air and space. The present study is concerned with the effects of externally imposed body accelerations on blood flow in a branched system of arteries. A finite-element model of flow in the arterial system subject to periodic body accelerations is presented. Computational results on the flow rates through selected arteries and the corresponding inlet and outlet pressures under different conditions (magnitude, frequency and direction) of applied acceleration are presented.
