Background: Computational modeling of cardiovascular flow is a growing and useful field, but such simulations usually require the researcher to guess the flow's inlet and outlet conditions since they are difficult and expensive to measure. It is critical to determine the amount of uncertainty introduced by these assumptions in order to evaluate the degree to which cardiovascular flow simulations ... read moreare accurate. Our work begins to address this question by examining the sensitivity of flow to several different assumed velocity inlet and outlet conditions in a patient-specific aorta model.
