Abstract

Arterial physiopathological behavior involves multiphysics mechanisms, as the result of the complex interplay between microscale transport phenomena and mechanical equilibrium. This chapter draws a modeling strategy for coupling macroscopic mechanics and molecular diffusive/reactive mechanisms via biochemically-motivated ...
