Numerical prediction of the longitudinal component of the velocity of interstitial fluid flowing through brain tissue in response to the peristaltic motion of the wall of a typical penetrating artery in brain.

 The details of the numerical framework used for this calculation are in F. Costanzo and S. T. Miller, "An arbitrary Lagrangian–Eulerian finite element formulation for a poroelasticity problem stemming from mixture theory," Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, 323 (2017), pp. 64–97.
