INTEGRAL METHODS FOR DESCRIBING PULSATILE FLOW

Abstract


This paper presents an approximate solution of the pulsatile flow of a Newtonian fluid in the laminar flow regime in a rigid tube of constant diameter. The model is represented by two ordinary differential equations. The first equation describes the time evolution of the total flow rate, and the
second equation characterizes the reverse flow near the wall. These equations are derived from the momentum balance equation and from the kinetic energy equation, respectively. The accuracy of the derived equations is compared with a solution in which the finite difference method is applied to a partial differential equation.
