  • Covers physical and mathematical modeling of flows in the human blood circulatory system
  • Provides an entry into the field for graduate students and researchers
  • Developed from the authors’ lectures at the Oberwolfach Research Institute (MFO)

This book surveys a broad range of research results on the physical and mathematical modeling, as well as the numerical simulation of hemodynamical flows, that is, of the complex fluid and structural mechanical processes that occur in the human blood circulation system.

The topics treated include continuum mechanical description; choice of suitable liquid and wall models; mathematical analysis of coupled models; numerical methods for flow simulation; parameter identification and model calibration; fluid-solid interaction; mathematical analysis of piping systems; mesh and mode adaptivity; particle transport in channels and pipes; artificial boundary conditions, and many more.

Hemodynamics is an area of active current research, and this book provides an entry into the field for graduate students and researchers. Hemodynamical Flows was developed out of a series of lectures presented by the authors at the Oberwolfach Research Institute (MFO), in Oberwolfach-Walke, Germany, in November, 2005.
