The aim of this study is to develop a distributed model of the entire systemic arterial tree, coupled to a heart model and including a detailed description of the cerebral arteries. Distributed models of the arterial tree have been studied extensively in the past (Avolio [1]; Cassot et al [2]; Meister [3]; Schaaf and Abbrecht [4]; Stergiopulos et al [5]; Westerhof et al [6]; Zagzoule and Marc-Vergnes [7]), however, no model has been developed so far that offers a physiologically relevant coupling to the heart and includes the entire cerebral artery network.
