CFD Model of Aortic Coarctation, demonstrating Windkessel model (lumped parameter model)

The presented work is part of a CFD challenge investigating the potential for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations to predicted pressures and flows in an aortic coarctation during stress when conditions for the rest case are known. In our approach, we choose to couple a three element Windkessel model to the outlet boundaries.
