Pulsatile volumetric flow rate (Q) and instantaneous Reynolds number (Re) for Rem=300. Flow stages A,B,[[ellipsis]],I are of particular importance for the evaluation of hemodynamic indicators. Peak systolic flow occurs at t=0.31 s and diastolic phase begins at t=0.52 s.

Pulsatile volumetric flow rate (Q) and instantaneous Reynolds number (Re) for Rem=50, corresponding to: (a) Mills’ 34 physiological resting curve obtained from velocity probe measurements and (b) Maier’s 38 in-vivo flow curve obtained using an MRI technique. Flow stages (1)–(5) are described in the Conclusions section and also apply to Fig. 2.

Streamlines for pulsatile flow at Rem=50 resulting from the application of: (a) Mills’ resting curve and (b) Maier’s in-vivo curve. The direction of the flow is from left to right.
Grahic Jump Location
Wall shear stress distributions at stage C (near peak flow) for Rem=50 resulting from the application of Mills’ (stage C1) and Maier’s (stage C2) curves. Peak flow is achieved at different times in each flow curve.
