Paper Abstract

Our preliminary measurements of blood flow velocities in rat mesentery microvessels performed by laser Doppler microscopy have served as a basis for developing of a mathematical model describing the influence of drag-reducing polymer molecules on microcirculation. The model takes into consideration linear (Poiseuille law) and nonlinear parts of the vessel resistance. The results of modeling are in accordance with experiments and give a 1.5 ... 2.5 times decrease of nonlinear part of individual vessel resistance.
