Title: Hemodynamic Analysis of an Abdominal Aortic Anevrysm in Patient Specific Model
Published In: Scientific Bulletin of the “Politehnica” University of Timisoara Transactions on Mechanics Tom 54(68), Fascicola 1, pp. 17-22
Description: The dynamic flow of blood in arteries is laminar with recirculation in an area with adjacent vessel branches of irregular geometries. But under specific conditions, this flow can be influenced by factors that bring about structural modifications in blood vessel geometries. These structural modifications can occur in the presence of an abdominal aortic aneurysm - AAA. The AAA represents a flaccid zone with a “swelling” bump in the aorta wall. In fact, an AAA is a gradual dilation of the aorta that occurs over a period of 10 years usually between the renal arteries and the iliac bifurcation. As the aorta swells, its walls weaken and it may eventually burst or rupture. Sudden ruptures often end in death. The main goal of this paper is the computational analysis of an AAA model using a real patient aneurysm computer tomography – CT scan. From the computational point of view a simplified finite – element grid on our reconstruct model geometry was design in the first step, the second step was a study of the most affected regions, of quality wall shear stress distribution, velocity magnitude field, quantify wall pressure field, of the AAA model, and flow characterization of hemodynamic field using spatial particle distribution, respectively.
