To further elucidate the role of fluid mechanical factors in the localization of atherogenesis and thrombogenesis, we have studied the 3-dimensional flow patterns in square T-junctions with branching angles theta from 30 degrees to 150 degrees and diameter ratios d/D (side: main tube) from 1.05/3.0 to 1.0. Cine films of the motions of tracer microspheres in dilute suspensions were taken at inflow Reynolds numbers from 15 to 400 and flow ratios (main: side tube) from 0.1 to 4.0. Flow patterns… CONTINUE READING
