Abstract

This article deals with the importance of studying hemodynamics as an outstanding factorfor prediction of vascular diseases. First the governing equations to study arteries and hemodynamics are given. Next discretization of the governing equations for its solution with the finite element method are exposed. Finally an efficient and robust algorithm to analyze the fluid-structure interaction of blood circulation in arteries is explained. Several example problems are presented showing the capabilities of the formulation presented.
