Secondary flow vortical structures in a ${180}^{∘}$ elastic curved vessel with torsion under steady and pulsatile inflow conditions

Secondary flow vortical structures in a ${180}^{∘}$ elastic curved vessel with torsion under steady and pulsatile inflow conditions
Mohammad Reza Najjari, Michael W. Plesniak
Multiple vortex-pair morphologies were studied using particle image velocimetry in steady and pulsatile flows through elastic curved vessels. Torsion effects were more profound than local vessel compliance (elasticity) effects. Torsion induces asymmetry in the vortical structures and causes like-signed vortices to merge.
