Flow in Locally Constricted Tapered Tubes
The problem of flow in a locally constricted tube is one which is often encountered in the circulation of blood through the blood vessels. In particular, permanent local constriction occurs as a result of either localized injury or certain types of occlusive vascular disease such as atherosclerosis which affects only a small portion of a blood vessel rather than a large segment.
