This paper examines the capabilities offered by the fluid structure interaction (FSI) algorithms in LS-DYNA for solving problems in vascular biomechanics. In this work a case was examined in which the onset of a pressure pulse was simulated at the entrance of a straight segment of artery. The resulting dynamic response in the form of a propagating pulse wave through the vessel wall was analyzed and compared to both previous numerical results and theory. The results from the three dimensional model compared well to the theoretical description of an idealized thin-walled artery. Results were further compared to those obtained from similar research. The numerical methodologies applied in the three dimensional model were used in the development of an experiment providing a realistic physical model of a carotid artery in its physiological state. The experiment is to be used for further validation of the numerical code.
