From: Human coronary plaque wall thickness correlated positively with flow shear stress and negatively with plaque wall stress: an IVUS-based fluid-structure interaction multi-patient study

Figure 8

Plots of plaque wall stress and strain from 2 models showing the effect of curvature variations on stress and strain distributions. M1: baseline model with cyclic bending; M2: model using the minimum curvature without cyclic bending. (a) M1, PWS, max bending, Pin=112 mmHg; (b) M2, PWS, no cyclic bending, Pin=112 mmHg; (c) M1, PWS, min bending, Pin=72 mmHg; (d) M2, PWS, no cyclic bending, Pin=72 mmHg; (e) M1, PWSn, max bending, Pin=112 mmHg; (f) M2, PWSn, no cyclic bending, Pin=112 mmHg; (g) M1, PWSn, min bending, Pin=72 mmHg; (h) M2, PWSn, no cyclic bending, Pin=72 mmHg.
