Transition to turbulence in pulsatile pipe flow is of interest in a variety of biological flow domains including in the left ventricle and aorta, aneurysms, and stenotic vessels. Transitional flow can critically alter distributions of important hemodynamic parameters such as wall shear stress (WSS). Many previous...

Silicone Sylgard 184 (PDMS) is commonly used when manufacturing geometries for bioflow studies due to its optical transparency and compliant nature. However, for use with particle image velocimetry (PIV), a suitable blood analog working fluid is needed which both matches the physical properties of blood...
