Fluid flow in tubes with elastic walls

Samara State Medical University, ul. Chapaevskaya 89, Samara, 443099, Russian Federation

Physico-mathematical aspects of fluid flow in elastic thin-walled tubes have been examined and nonlinear equations describing it have been derived and solved. It is shown that an auto-oscillating flow-regime (flutter) can occur and mathematical models of solitons (pulse waves) based on the Korteveg-de Vries equation and on the modified nonlinear Schroedinger equation have been developed. The appropriateness of using the elastic thin-walled tube model for the description of blood flow in major blood vessels is discussed.
