[5] calculated blood flows in both axisymmetrical and asymmetrical stenosis models with three different area reductions and found that in axisymmetrical models, the poststenotic blood flow is more sensitive to variations of the stenosis degree than in asymmetrical cases.

In this process, a workpiece (normally axisymmetrical) is placed on the rigid mandrel and rotating rollers deformed the workpiece under the contact zone.
Because of the axisymmetrical nature of the experimental facility and the flow, the simulations are carried out in an angular sector of the section of the pipe.
When measuring the force at the top of particle/interphase assembly, our system is axisymmetrical. Moreover, when the tip is placed over the matrix alone, relatively far from the particle, the tip is not influenced by the particle.
It can be seen that regions of each damage risk grade exhibit nonaxisymmetrical distributions with the central line of the roadway under oblique incident dynamic loads, compared with the axisymmetrical distributions of damage risk grades under static loads.
