My goal is to simulate a flow of blood in a vein in the human body. Is it possible I can simulate this flow in a vein that undergoes elastic deformation as the pulse pressure of the blood (i.e., with a vein of Elasticity module)? anyone know at least some keywords to search this?


thank you!

Annier is an unknown quantity at this point
in openfoam, almost every type of simulation can be done.
if any software is okay for you, you can once have a look in elmer software. There is a tutorial (please download pdf tutorials from elmer documentation) on blood ejection from a ventricle into aorta.

Hello .. I want to simulate a flow of blood in a vein. The vein is rigid (the mesh is attached) with one input and one output. Solvers which I could use to simulate this flow (non-Newtonian)? What should be the best?


Thank you!

OpenFOAM has "nonNewtonianIcoFoam" which solves Non-Newtonian fluid flows. You can try that for your case.

Best Luck!
