A one-dimensional model for blood flow: Application to vascular prosthesis
We investigate a one-dimensional model of blood flow in human arteries. In particular, we consider the case when an abrupt variation of mechanical characteristic of artery is caused by the presence of a vascular prosthesis. The derivations of the model and of a numerical scheme adopted for its solution are detailed. Numerical experiments show the effectiveness of the model.
