An experimental investigation of physiologically relevant pulsatile flow in a model of the human aortic arch has been conducted. The model aortic arch flow chamber was fabricated in clear acrylic from an in situ casting of the human aorta and was incorporated in a mock-circulatory system. The model excluded the coronary sinuses and the three major branching arteries of the mid-arch region in order to concentrate only upon the effects of the multi-dimensional curvatures and tapering in the aorta… CONTINUE READING
