Difference between recirculation zone and turbulent flow region
 

Hi all

Iíve been confused with difference between recirculation zone and turbulent flow region. Iíve simulated blood flow inside some coronary arteries (arteries with very small diameter 4mm) and some recirculation zones were observed at locations of stenosis. Can I say that my flow is turbulent because I have a recirculated flow? What is the difference between recirculated flow and turbulent flow? Are they related to each other?

Thank you
AshtonJ
