Heil, M. & Jensen, O.E. (2003) Flows in deformable tubes and channels
-- Theoretical models and biological applications
Chapter 2 of: Flow in Collapsible Tubes and Past Other Highly
Editors: P.W. Carpenter &
Kluwer, Dordrecht, Netherlands.
This chapter gives an overview of the main physiological applications
of collapsible tube flows and reviews the major theoretical and
computational developments of the past twenty-five years, ranging from
lumped-parameter models to three-dimensional Navier--Stokes
simulations. We also discuss some of the significant questions that,
despite substantial progress, still remain open.
