  author={Mohamed A. Bahloul and Taous‐Meriem Laleg‐Kirati},
Recent studies have demonstrated the advantages of fractional-order calculus tools for probing the viscoelastic properties of collagenous tissue, characterizing the arterial blood flow and red cell membrane mechanics, and modeling the aortic valve cusp. In this article, we present a novel lumped-parameter equivalent circuit models of the apparent arterial compliance using a fractional-order capacitor (FOC). FOC, which generalizes capacitors and resistors, displays a fractional-order behavior…

Arterial Viscoelastic Model using Lumped Parameter Circuit With Fractional-Order Capacitor

The proposed model offers a pioneer way for the better interpretation of the viscoelastic effect on the arterial hemodynamic effect and can be investigated as a reliable computer-based simulation platform for cardiac pathophysiology diagnosis and treatment.

The proposed model incorporates a fractional-order capacitor that substitutes the ideal capacitor of standard three-elements WK model that combines both resistive and capacitive properties which displays viscoelastic behavior of the arterial vessel.

Fractional Order Models of Arterial Windkessel as an Alternative in the Analysis of the Left Ventricular Afterload.

The proposed fractional-order models provide a new tool for "hemodynamic inverse problem" solving and offer a new, innovative way to better understand the viscoelastic effect, in terms of resistive behavior of the arterial motions.

Fractional-Order Viscoelasticity in One-Dimensional Blood Flow Models

The results confirm that the effect of fractional models on hemodynamics is primarily controlled by the fractional order, which affects pressure wave propagation by introducing viscoelastic dissipation in the system.

Fractional order viscoelasticity of the aortic valve cusp: an alternative to quasilinear viscoelasticity.

Determining the fractional order can provide a new and sensitive quantitative measure for tissue comparison, and can provide valuable new insights into tissue viscoelastic behavior.

A fractional derivative model to describe arterial viscoelasticity.

Two fractional alternative models with one and two spring-pots are proposed, one of which should be considered in describing arterial viscoelasticity in vivo, and a new element, called "spring-pot", that interpolates between springs and dashpots is incorporated.

Fractional order models of viscoelasticity as an alternative in the analysis of red blood cell (RBC) membrane mechanics

New lumped-element models of red blood cell mechanics can be constructed using fractional order generalizations of springs and dashpots, providing a concise way to describe and quantify the biomechanical behavior of membranes, cells and tissues.

Fractional-order viscoelasticity applied to describe uniaxial stress relaxation of human arteries.

This work proposes an alternative relaxation function based on fractional calculus theory to describe stress relaxation experiments in strips cut from healthy human aortas, based in a modified Voigt model, including a fractional element of order alpha, called spring-pot.

Apparent arterial compliance.

This work describes compliance as a complex function of frequency that relates input pressure to volume stored and, by applying transmission theory, this relationship is shown to be a function of heart rate, peripheral resistance, and pulse wave reflection.
