Shear-controlled dilation in single or branched arterioles leads to unstable behavior which can be stabilized by series fluid resistances

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

A stability analysis of some simple elements of arteriolar networks via shear stress control of vascular diameter is conducted to assess the character of the instabilities seen in network models, and to see whether series resistances that are constant in time can stabilize these simple methods. Three vascular models are used. In the first model, a shear-stress reactive arteriolar segment is in series with passive resistance, and is subjected to constant flow or pressure applied over both shear-reactive and passive components. In the second, two parallel shear-sensitive arteriolar segments are in series with coupled passive resistance network. In the third, two asymmetric arteriolar branches are connected to two different outlet pressures, and sum of flow in both branches are assumed constant.
