Effect of spatial variations in shear on diffusion at the wall of an arterial branch


Journal Article (Academic article)

The effect of spatially varying shear on transport to the wall of a two-dimensional branch was examined, using oxygen as the test solute and the results of earlier fluid mechanical calculations to provide the shear profiles in a region characterizing the aortic bifurcation. The numerical technique employed allowed both blood-phase and mural resistances to solute uptake to be treated simultaneously and self-consistently
