In the veins, blood pressure and flow velocity are relatively low, with increased possibility of thrombus formation, and valves maintain the flow direction.

In a normal circulatory system, the volume of blood returning to the hemodynamifs each minute is approximately equal to the volume that is pumped out each minute the cardiac output.

The anisotropy is strongly dependent on the degree of stretch in those two directions, again illustrating the nonlinear properties of artery walls 94 Vessel lengths and vessel diameters both decrease by about three orders of magnitude from the aorta to the capillaries. Smoothness is reduced by the buildup of fatty deposits on the arterial walls.

The theory developed above contains numerous simplifications, based on assumptions that are in many cases not well justified under realistic physiological conditions 12 The existence of such a phenomenon has in fact been known and discussed for many years From the above equation we can see that the sedimentation velocity of the particle depends on the square of the radius.

Axial mechanical properties of hemodynnamics walls and their anisotropy.



When blood flows in narrow tubes, the concentration of red blood cells within the tube tube hematocrit, H T is observed to be less than the concentration in the blood entering and leaving the tube discharge hematocrit, H D. If the displacement is the same for every point in the object, then it has undergone a translation without any deformation. Though the radii of the capillaries are very small, the network of capillaries have the largest surface area in the vascular network.

The dependence of the logarithm of viscosity on hematocrit was fitted using a fifth-order polynomial function for each shear rate tested, ranging from 0.

Each element of the tensor describes a specific type of deformation. However, aggregates can be broken up by relatively low levels of shear stress. Their interiors consist of a concentrated solution of the oxygen-carrying protein hemoglobin.

Basic Clin Pharmacol Toxicol. The velocity profile is almost uniform across the diameter of the tube, with narrow viscous boundary layers at the walls. The assumptions of continuum theory imply that a fluid must satisfy the no-slip condition, which states that the velocity of the fluid immediately adjacent to a solid surface moves with the velocity of the surface.

Integrating the velocity across the circular cross-section of the tube gives the volume flow rate Q in the tube:.

In a time-varying flow, the driving pressure includes a component related to the acceleration of blood. The osmotic pressure of solution is determined by the number of particles present and by the temperature.

Both cases are possible; at the aortoiliac bifurcation in humans, the reflection coefficient varies from positive values in youth to negative values in old age The flow rates in each segment of the network can be calculated using basic principles, such as the laws for the combined resistance of resistors connected in series or in parallel, namely.


In the second half of the twentieth century, progress in instrumentation for measuring blood flow and pressure, together with increased capabilities for numerical computation, led to a period of rapid development in the study of arterial hemodynamics.

Die Blut und Lymphwege in Dunndarm des Hundes. Blood is composed of plasma and formed elements. Calculations of the circumferential stress in vessel walls according to Eq. A further consequence is that the location of peak axial velocity is displaced toward the outer wall, so that the wall shear stress is increased there and reduced on the inner wall The equation for conservation of momentum follows from Eq. According to this definition, the emphasis is on the fluid and solid mechanics of the system.

Development of boundary layer shaded area in fluid entering a tube. The adequate distribution of blood flow to all parts of the body, so as to meet the changing needs of the tissues for oxygen and other nutrients and for removal of waste products, represents the most essential function of the circulatory system. Governing equations for fluid motions When Eq.
