MetadataShow full item record
This paper aims to present three-dimensional simulation of blood behavior in the system of human coronary arteries. The mathematical model is a set of partial differential equations including continuity equation and Navier-Stokes equations. The pulsatile conditions due to the heart pump during a cardiac cycle is imposed on the boundaries. Computational domain consists of the base of aorta, the left and the right coronary arteries. Finite element method is applied for the solution of the mathematical model Blood flow and temperature distribution in coronary system with normal arteries and stenosed arteries are computed. The results show that the appearance of stenosis reduces blood flow rate in the stenosed artery.

Haemodynamic evaluation of coronary artery plaques : prediction of coronary atherosclerosis and disease progressionChaichana, Thanapong (2012)Coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in advanced countries. Coronary artery disease tends to develop at locations where disturbed flow patterns occur, such as the left coronary artery. Haemodynamic change ...
Computational fluid dynamics analysis of the effect of simulated plaques in the left coronary artery: A preliminary study.Chaichana, T.; Jewkes, James; Sun, Zhonghua (2011)Background: Atherosclerosis is the most common cause of coronary artery disease which is formed by plaque presence inside the artery wall leading to blockage of the blood supply to the heart muscle. The mechanism of ...
