flow analysis

Dear friend I am doing Blood flow analysis in a stenosed artery. (Steady state simulation)

I created venturi type solid model (Blood domain )

The flow is Z direction

I assume flow rate is 50 ml/min from which I calculated the velocity (Q= Av : Continuity equation)

I set the inlet velocity as Umax(1-r^2/R^2)

outlet : Mass and momentum >Average Static pressure= 0 Pa

Is this correct?

I set Domain models>reference pressure 1 atm

But I have seen in many papers the pressure varies between 80mm Hg - 120mm Hg.( Diastole -Systole Pressure)

But I did n't use the above pressure anywhere.

In CFX post , Which pressure measurement is suitable ? Is it Total pressure or pressure?

when I did the simulation I checked the Total pressure

before the stenosis the pressure is Approx 230Pa . In a venturi region pressure drops but after venturi the flow pressure decreases and decreases

Why not the pressure is recovered to 230 Pa ?Where can I implement 80mm Hg pressure or 120mm Hg pressure in the simulation.

to set up the boundary condition.
If I want to introduce transition analysis How can I introduce it. Please help me to give tips
Thank you

Regards
Govind

First of all, do you need the pressure to vary between 80-120 mmHg? If so, why do you do a steady-state simulation?

To prescribe a varying pressure at the outlet have a look at http://www.edr.no/blogg/ansys_blogge...nsient_profile

Velocity profile at inlet and pressure at outlet seems like reasonable BCs.

Regarding transition, consider RANS models (gamma-theta) or LES. Have a look in a CFD text book for the details. Also, you really should consider a basic course in CFD.

Dear Mr Lance

I tried Transient analysis . But I have convergent problem.
I increased the length of the artery too. The flow is Z dirction

My inlet velocity is
U=0
V=0
W= 0.2[m/s]*(1+sin(2*pi*2[Hz]*t-pi/2)

I set the pressure at the outlet 0 Pa

initial condition ; U=0, V=0, W= 0 and pressure =0

Here is the

CFX Command Language for Run for your reference. Kindly help me . Because I need a pressure at every point . |
