Effect of Stenosis Asymmetry on Blood Flow and Artery Compression: A Three-Dimensional Fluid-Structure Interaction Model

Abstract

A nonlinear three-dimensional thick-wall model with fluid-structure interactions is introduced to simulate blood flow in carotid arteries with an asymmetric stenosis to quantify the effects of stenosis severity, eccentricity, and pressure conditions on blood flow and artery compression (compressive stress in the wall). Mechanical properties of the tube wall… (More)
