A one-dimensional inviscid solution for flow through a compliant tube with a stenosis is presented. The model is used to represent an artery with an atherosclerotic plaque and to investigate a range of conditions for which arterial collapse may occur. The coupled equations for flow through collapsible tubes are solved using a Runge-Kutta finite difference scheme. Quantitative results are given for specific physiological parameters including inlet and outlet pressure, flow rate, stenosis size… CONTINUE READING
