Design and Prototype Development of a Low-Cost Blood Flow Simulator for Vascular Phantoms

The proposed solution is to use a low cost device, not able to perform a reliable closed loop control, but suitable to obtain an ARX non-linear model of the hydraulic circuit thanks to Matlab tools, suitable to produce the targeted waveform.

Influence of Wall Compliance on the Flow Patterns in a Patient-Specific Brachio-Cephalic Arterio-Venous Fistula

The findings of this study suggest that to determine the bulk flow, a rigid model is adequate, but to capture the finer details of theflow, a compliant model is necessary.

Meso-Scale Particle Image Velocimetry Studies of Neurovascular Flows In Vitro.

A simplified experimental protocol developed to address limitations of in vitro flow visualization studies, which demonstrates the applicability of this protocol within the context of neurovascular flow characterization; it is expected to be relevant to a broader range of mesoscale applications in bioengineering and beyond.
