In this example, blood flows through an artery. The Carrreau non newtonian model has been chosen to model the blood. Windkessel type boundary conditions have been imposed on the different vessel outlets symbolizing the external blood load. When this boundary condition is used, the pressure will be imposed function of the total flux and some circuit parameters. In the electrical analog, pressure represents the scalar potential and flux the total current.
