A model of the pulsatile fluid flow in the lymph node

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review

Abstract

The aim of the paper is to propose a mathematical model for the flow of the interstitial fluid in a lymph node, which main feature is the presence of a porous bulk region with a very low permeability, surrounded by a thin channel where the fluid can flow freely. The flow is driven by a pulsatile pressure gradient. An explicit solution is found in the case of a laminar flow in a simplified situation, while some finite element simulations are presented in a more realistic geometry.
