Table 2: Geometric and physiological parameters of the arterial vessels. The length ( ), proximal radius ( ), distal radius ( ), and wall thickness ( ) of the systemic arteries are based on Stergiopulos et al. [19]. The parameters of the three-element model (Z, , and ; see Figure 3) were determined as described in Section 2.3. The numbers of the vessels correspond to the numbers shown in Figure 4.
