|Title:||Sensitivity of hemodynamic parameters to waveform, flow division, and head rotation in the human carotid bifurcation||Authors:||Papaharilaou, Yannis

The sensitivity of these important parameters however, with variations of driving flow waveform, flow division and posture changes are not well known. To investigate these changes, we have used image based CFD, to analyze the flowfield of the carotid bifurcation of a healthy volunteer for five different input waveforms, three flow division ratios and two head postures.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/7633||ISBN:||978-079184321-5||Rights:||© 2008 by ASME||Type:||Book Chapter|
