Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The intermittent flow through a strongly curved tube modeling the aortic arch was numerically analyzed by solving the 3D-NS equations. Based on the resultant velocity fields, the strength and direction of wall shear stress were calculated.
