Boundary layer development of pulsatile blood flow in a tapered vessel
- 43 Downloads
Assuming that the tapered angle is small, the problems of developing flow under unsteady oscillatory condition are studied in this paper. The formula of velocity distribution is obtained. The analyses for the results show that the blood flow in a converging tapered vessel remains a developing flow throughout the length, and the effects of tapered angle on the developing flow are increased with the increment of the tapered angle.
