Abstract

This paper is a review of numerical models of flow in large arterial vessels. The main objective of the paper is to formulate a comprehensive model of such arterial flows, including the wall motion, with special attention paid to the modelling of ventricles. In the first and main part, the fluid-dynamical aspects of the problem will be reviewed and discussed. Blood flow modelling applications in large vessels are reviewed, with emphasis on the modelling of natural and artificial ventricles (artificial hearts and cardiac assist devices). Simplified geometries of ventricles will
