The mechanism of atherosclerosis has not been clarified yet. It is known, however, that the blood flow and the vessel wall stress might have more or less impact on its occurring. In the present study, in order to obtain the information of pulsatile flow in the arterial Y-shape bifurcation, where the atherosclerosis selectively occurs, the PIV (Particle Image Velocimetry) measurement has been carried out for Y-tube solid and elastic models. The results of velocity distributions on the centereddoi:10.1299/kikaib.73.965 fatcat:gqiabrcywjhppg2h25w36fvfx4
