Kaimal, MR (1981) Propagation characteristics in distensible tubes containing a visco-elastic fluid. In: Journal of Biomechanics, 14 (1). pp. 47-53.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
The propagation characteristics of a visco-elastic fluid in a distensible tube tube are studied. The linear visco-elastic nature of the fluid is described by a complex coefficient of viscosity η*. The equation of motion of the vessel wall takes into account the pulsatile nature of the wall. Results are presented for wave propagation velocity, the resistance and the reactance of the fluid and the wall impedance. It is seen that the visco-elastic influence is significant for high values of the frequency of oscillation in various arterial vessels.
