Measurement of wall motion and wall shear in a compliant arterial cast

Journal Article (Academic Article)

Initial measurements of the time-varying wall shear rate at two sites in a compliant cast of a human aortic bifurcation are presented. The shear rates were derived from flow velocities measured by laser Doppler velocimetry (LDV) near the moving walls of the cast. To derive these shear rate values, the distance from the velocimeter sampling volume to the cast wall must be known. The time variation of this distance was obtained from LDV measurements of the velocity of the wall itself
