\(\Pi (\text{Re})\) and \(\Pi ^*(\text{Re}^*)\) for \(\alpha=0\) (steady flow, solid symbols) and \(\alpha=7.78\) (pulsatile flow, open symbols), respectively. In the pulsatile flow, the red (blue) symbols correspond to the acceleration (deceleration) phase of \(v_0(t).\) The values of the rest of parameters are \({\mathcal {S}}=0.583,\) \(\text{SRI}=\infty\) and \(\omega=\eta=0\)
