Analysis of pulse wave propagation in aorta

By Oldřich Holubář


This master thesis is focused on usage of monitoring pulse wave propagation in aortic system in a field of diagnostic abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). There is a description of cardio-vascular system and its pathology in a form of AAA. A summarization of temporary diagnostic method was created and some new methods were proposed. This new methods presume monitoring of pulse wave propagation. Fluid structure interaction (FSI) analyses of pulse wave propagation were performed on simplified models of geometry which representing specific sections of aorta. The goal of these analyses was to prove usage of FSI method in a future development of proposed diagnostic methods
