Numerical Simulations of the Non-Newtonian Blood Blow in Human Abdominal Artery Based on Reverse Engineering
The method that combined the reverse engineering based on CT medical images and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) was used to perform simulation the Non-Newtonian blood fluid flow in human abdominal artery, then analyzed the hemodynamic condition about the bifurcation of human abdominal artery. A Non-Newtonian blood model (the Generalised Power Law) was used to study the hemodynamic parameters during entire cardiac cycle. Calculated results for the Non-Newtonian blood flow show us the methods performed in this study is suitable for numerical simulating the blood flow in human artery and investigating the relation between hemodynamic factors and vascular disease.
