Biomechanics Research Applied continued from page 1 blood towards the outer walls of the vessel, and a marked decrease in pressure, all at the vicinity of the constriction. With all these factors, there is a great division among biomechanists, engineers, as well as physicians, with regard to the actual cause of the bulging. No model has actually been produced that takes in all the factors mentioned above. KhaliloIIahi said that his experiment took into account actual arteries where other experiments have used rubber tubing. The difference is in the characteristic of elasticity of the type of vessel. Rubber tubing is linear-elastic, that is the graph of its elasticity vs. stress is a direct, linear relation. Blood vessels, however, are non-linear elastic and KhaliloIIahi was able to better simulate the actual flow in an artery by using an actual steer aorta which he acquired from the meat lab at University Park. The only drawback to his analysis of the flow was that in his ex...
