<emphasis role="bold">Introduction</emphasis> We now turn our attention to the creation of mathematical models which can be used to simulate the flow of blood in the circulatory system. A good place to start is with the study of flow in large blood vessels. This flow is pulsatile in nature, so our concern is the relationship between the periodically varying pressure gradient driving the flow and the instantaneous blood velocity and flow rate. An understanding of the mathematical descriptio…
