enhanced the flowrate of blood in both the systole and diastole phases of the cycle. They found plagued-free arteries to have higher shear stress compared to plague-narrowed arteries. The reason behind the use of using mechanical modeling is to study the impact of debulking arteries and the impact this will have on blood flowrate. They use reconstituted ultrasound images to demonstrate their results. Future research can exploit these concepts in realistic geometries in fluid mechanics modeling. Instead of using human blood vessels, where it is difficult to control pressure along arteries, future studies should focus on practical conduit characteristics to demonstrate the impact of surface on flowrate. It is easier to control fluid characteristics such as density, velocity, and viscosity. It is also easier to control conduit
Surname 2 characteristics such as area, length and flows as the areas of constriction. Changing of conduit radii, hence, could help to study fluid flow characteristics compared to using human blood vessels. However, the use of image reconstruction technologies can find a wider application in practical fluid mechanics in the laboratory.
