We studied the collagen turnover in the arterial tissue of hypertensive patients through a coupled computational mechano-chemical finite element model in three stages: (1) the smooth muscle cells synthesize different biological substances because of the overstretching during hypertension; (2) mass transport occurs along the arterial wall; and (3) the turnover of collagen takes place based on the amount of these substances. The final results show the well-known stiffening of the arterial wall due to the increase in the collagen content.

We present a three-dimensional particle-based model of a platelet with key subcellular elements. It is designed to simulate quiescent platelet shape before activation and dynamic filopodia formation upon activation. The function that maps the model parameters to observed geometric measurements in flow-induced activated platelets was established by analyzing the numerical trends, enabling the use of formulae for simulating filopodia of varied lengths and thicknesses. The model, along with experimental investigation, establishes a novel dynamic framework for exploring the underlying mechanism of filopodia formation and their quantitative contribution to platelet shape change.
- Rational macromodeling of 1D blood flow in the human cardiovascular system

Article first published online: 13 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cnm.2707
We present a novel rational macromodeling approach for the description of 1D blood flow in the human cardiovascular system. The rational form of the proposed cardiovascular model leads to a state-space or electrical circuit model suitable for time-domain analysis. The stability and passivity properties of the cardiovascular model are discussed to guarantee stable time-domain simulations, and frequency and time-domain results validate the proposed macromodeling approach.
