Application of the (G'/G)-expansion method to nonlinear blood flow in large vessels
Document info: Pages 9, Figures 2.
The $(G'/G)$-expansion method is applied to the one-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations that usually model blood flow in large vessels. A nonlinear stress-strain condition is applied and different types of travelling waves solutions are found. The shape of the pressure of blood waves and their biological implications are discussed.
