Modeling Blood Flow in the Aorta.
McConnell, Colin J.; Carmichael, Jonathan B.; DeMont, M. Edwin
American Biology Teacher, v59 n9 p586-88 Nov-Dec 1997
Presents an exercise to demonstrate two fundamental concepts of fluid mechanics: the Reynolds number and the Principle of Continuity. The exercise demonstrates flow in a major blood vessel, such as the aorta, with and without a stenosis. Students observe the transition from laminar to turbulent flow as well as downstream persistence of turbulence. (Author/AIM)
