Implementation of variable segments to model the arterial system using electromechanical analogy

Stefan Borik – Ivo Cap – Branko Babusiak – Klara Capova

   The article deals with the design of an electrical model of variable segments of a non-symmetrical tree of small arteries This model can be used to simulate the blood pressure and flow. Peripheral arterial resistance changes are modelled by an exponentially dependent resistor. By modulating the capacitor value, we can model the arterial wall properties which depend on the arterial pressure. Simulations are performed in which vasoconstriction and vasodilation were modelled by varying the transmural pressure. As a result, we can observe the changes in the blood pressure for each arterial generation.

Keywords: arterial system, electromechanical analogy, modelling and simulations, small arteries, transmural pressure
