    Effects of Mechanical Loading Environment on Aneurysm

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Abdollahi, Rahim (Author) ; Abedian, Ali (Supervisor)
    Human body is subjected to body accelerations or vibrations in several circumstances. During gravitational changes, the hydrostatic pressure gradient along the body axis changes, and then body fluids are redistributed. Prolonged exposure to high level external acceleration may lead to serious or even fatal situations on account of disturbances in blood flow. Due to physiological importance of body acceleration many theoretical investigations have been carried out for the flow of blood under the influence of body acceleration. In this study, the mechanical loads that pilots experience during flight are considered. The aim of the present study is to investigate the effects of mechanical... 

    Numerical and One Dimensional Modeling of Cardiovascular System Along with Lumped Parameter Modeling of the Heart

    Cardiovascular diseases are major causes of morbidity and mortality in the world. In order to prevent or reduce these diseases, engineers and scientists are concerned to find solutions. In this way, it is important to know about the blood flow and its changes in various diseases. By using simulation methods, diagnosis can be very easier. In this study, a system of arterial tree consisting of 93 systemic arteries along with 7 pulmonary arteries is considered. In other words, this model contains 100 systemic and pulmonary arteries that encompass central and peripheral arteries. Other parts of this model are cerebral vasculature and coronary arteries. Cerebral arteries, also called circle of...
