Statistical analysis for measuring the effects of stenotic shapes and spiral flows on wall shear stress by using numerical simulations of physiological blood flow
K. Mamun, K. Funazaki, M. N. Akhter
Abstract: Numerical simulations have been done for a statistical analysis to investigate the effect of stenotic shapes and spiral flows on wall shear stress in the three-dimensional idealized stenotic arteries. Non-Newtonian flow has been taken for the simulations. The wall of the vessel is considered to be rigid. Physiological, parabolic and spiral velocity profile has been imposed for inlet boundary condition. Moreover, the time-dependent pressure profile has been taken for outlet boundary condition. Reynolds number at the inlet has been ranged approximately from 86 to 966 for the investigation. Low Reynolds number k-w model has been used as governing equation. 120 simulations have been performed for getting the numerical results. However, the numerical results of wall shear stress have been taken for the statistical analysis. The simulations and the statistical analysis have been performed by using ANSYS-18.1 and SPSS respectively. The statistical analyses are significant as p-value in all cases are zero. The eccentricity is the most influencing factor for WSSmax. The WSSmin has been influenced only by the flow spirality. The stenotic length has an influence only on the WSSmax whereas the stenotic severity has an influence on the WSSmax and WSSave.
