A minimally diseased (mean intimal thickness = 56 microns) human aortic bifurcation was replicated in rigid and compliant flow-through casts. Both casts were perfused with physiological flow waves having the same Reynolds and unsteadiness numbers; the pulse pressure in the compliant cast produced radial strains similar to those expected from post-mortem measurements of the compliance of the original tissue. The compliant cast was perfused with a Newtonian fluid and one whose rheology was closer… CONTINUE READING
