We are concerned with the problem of viscous flow in an elastic tube. Elastic tubes collapse (buckle non-axisymmetrically) when the transmural pressure (internal minus external pressure) falls below a critical value. The tube's large deformation during the buckling leads to a strong interaction between the fluid and solid mechanics. In this study, the steady three-dimensional Stokes equations are used to analyse the slow viscous flow in such a tube whose deformation is described by… CONTINUE READING
