N2 - This work involves applying director theory to the modelling of fluid flow in straight and curvedpipes. Director theory assumes that the velocity of the fluid can be approximated by a summation of weighting functions multiplied by vectors that are dependent on the coordinate following the centre-line of the pipe. The aim is to investigate whether this could be a useful approach for modelling bloodflow in the human cardiovascular system. The approach allows for a more realistic geometric modelthan classical 1D approaches, but is computationally cheaper than full 3D simulations.
