Title: Mathematical modeling of incompressible flow through a collapsible tube
Author: Lowdermilk, Jennifer L.
Abstract: An in-depth examination of eight articles pertaining to collapsible tube phenomenon is provided. Experimental models and mathematical models are explored. Two mathematical models are developed by the author, each of which attempt to reproduce experimental data provided by Lyon [37]. Respective models produce sets of coupled differential equations, and Advanced Continuous Simulation Language (ACSL) is utilized to solve these equations. Neither of the author's models provides total numerical reproductions of the experimental data under consideration. However, general trends are obtained which correspond to those observed in Lyon's data. General responses to variations in system parameters are provided for both models.
