Performance of one- and two-dimensional models for a slow flow system in a long, permeable tubule.


A radially symmetric slow flow system in a long cylinder with moderate wall leakage is considered, with physical parameters taken from the renal proximal tubule. Dimensional analysis yields a simplified system which, under certain assumptions, is well-posed, and possesses a unique solution if a solution exists. A lumped parameter analysis generates a one… (More)
