On a Continuum Model of Blood Flow

  • Carlo Ferrari


A continuum model of blood flow is considered,which differs from those proposed by Kline et al. [1], and by Popel at al.[4]as for the constitutive equation relating the gradient of the chemical potential to the diffusion flux vector is concerned. Then, the equations of the blood flow in a two-dimensional channel are written and solved in the case in which the ratio of a typical length of the red-cells to the width of the channel is small.
