    In this study, using fluid-structure interaction (FSI), 3-dimensional blood flow in an aneurysm in the circle of Willis-which is located in the middle cerebral artery (MCA)-has been simulated. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of a partly blocked vessel on an aneurysm. To achieve this purpose, two cases have been investigated using the FSI method: in the first case, an ideal geometry of aneurysm in the MCA has been simulated; in the second case, modeling is performed for an ideal geometry of the aneurysm in the MCA with a partly blocked vessel. All boundary conditions, properties and modeling methods were considered the same for both cases. The only difference between the...

    One of the leading causes for death after heart diseases and cancer in all over the world is still stroke. Most strokes happen because an artery carrying blood from the heart to the brain is clogged. Most of the time, as with heart attacks, the problem is atherosclerosis, hardening of the arteries, calcified build up of fatty deposits on the vessel wall. The primary troublemaker is the carotid artery, one on each side of the neck, the main thoroughfare for blood to the brain. In this study, the fluid dynamic simulations were done in the carotid bifurcation artery for studying the formation of atherosclerosis, and shear thinning behavior of blood as well as Newtonian comportment was studied....
