We present numerical schemes to solve monodimensional equations of blood flow in elastic arteries with varying cross section. This is similar to shallow water equations with a topography. Too simple resolutions of shallow water equations create spurious flows, so ‘well-balanced’ schemes have been developed to avoid this, and in particular, to preserve the equilibrium of the ‘lake at rest’. The analog is proposed here for the blood flow: the equilibrium of the ‘man at eternal rest’.
