Abstract: Numerical simulation is performed to demonstrate that hemodynamic factors are significant determinants for the development of a vascular pathology. Experimental measurements by particle image velocimetry are carried out to validate the credibility of the computational approach. We present a study for determining complex flow structures using the case of an anatomically realistic carotid bifurcation model that is reconstructed from medical imaging. A transparent silicone replica of the artery is developed for invitro flow measurement. The dynamic behaviours of blood through the vascular structure based on the numerical and experimental approaches show good agreement. © 2010, Springer.
