Wave Propagation, Elastic Tube, Arterial System, Reflect Wave,


We simulated the loop, and microcirculation structure at the end of the arterial system by measuring the wave propagation property in it. Our result shows the microcirculation-end structure acts like an open-end with weak reflection. The loop shortens the length of arterial tube, but with the reflection effect the same as a long tube. Analyses of pressure wave propagating in these structures may help us to understand not only the pressure wave propagating but also the purpose of these structures in physiology.
