Nonlinear pressure-velocity waveforms in large arteries, shock waves and wave separation.
The nonlinear inviscid 1D blood flow equations are studied analytically using the method of characteristics. The boundary value problem with a triangle-shaped boundary data at the aortic outlet is considered. The pressure-velocity profile, the shock conditions are derived as closed analytical expressions. Finally, the fully nonlinear wave separation expressions are obtained using the Riemann invariants. The results show good correspondence with the data from literature.

Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform. Clicks to view the full text will be directed to the publisher website, where only users with subscriptions or access through their institution are able to view the full article.
