    Abstract: Dynamics of endolymph and cupula in a semicircular canal subject to high frequency oscillations imposed on the endolymph at the open section of the canal is investigated. Deformation of cupula inside the endolymph fluid is simulated numerically.A high frequency and high amplitude periodic oscillations may result in the formation of vortical motions... Show More
