The development of atherosclerosis is correlated to the accumulation of lipids in the arterial wall, which, in turn, may be caused by the build-up of lowdensity lipoproteins (LDL) on the arterial surface. The goal of this study was to model blood flow within a subject specific human aorta, and to study how the LDL surface concentration changed during a cardiac cycle. With measured velocity profiles as boundary conditions, a scale-resolving technique (large eddy simulation, LES) was used todoi:10.1016/j.jbiomech.2011.11.039 pmid:22153749 fatcat:vuunfmkjo5b6tedk4vlfejj2qi
