A two-dimensional time-dependent computational fluid dynamics model of the Circle of Willis has been developed. To simulate, not only the peripheral resistance of the cerebrovascular tree but also its auto-regulation function, a new "active" boundary condition has been defined and developed using control theory to provide a model of the feedback mechanism… CONTINUE READING
