Abstract [en]

Computational fluid dynamics simulations were performed on a stenosed human aorta with poststenotic dilatation, in order to estimate wall shear stress (WSS). WSS is important due to its correlation with atherosclerosis. Both steady-state and non-stationary simulations were conducted. Three different models were created from a set of MRI images. Comparison of geometrically different models was accomplished by using geometrical landmarks and a comparison parameter. Geometrical differences had larger influence on WSS magnitude than inflow rotation in steady-state results for the models used. In non-stationary flow the largest differences in WSS are found when the flow velocity near the wall is low e.g. when the inflow is low or in recirculation regions.
