Abstract: To investigate the effect of the distensible artery wall on the local flow field and to determine the mechanical stresses in the artery wall, a numerical model for the blood flow in the human carotid artery bifurcation has been developed. The wall displacement and stress analysis use geometrically non-linear shell theory where incrementally linearly elastic wall behavior is assumed. The flow analysis applies the time-dependent, three-dimensional, incompressible Navier-Stokes equations for non-Newtonian inelast…
