The aim of this project is to elucidate the transition to turbulence in pulsatile flow through compliant conduits and aorta replicas. This will be achieved by looking at the stability of pulsatile flow in elastic pipes and flexible aortas and we will consider shear thinning fluids and polymer solutions. Upon completion of this project, we expect to understand how the transition to turbulence depends on fluid and wall characteristics.
