  • Abstract : Cerebrospinal fluid fills the subarachnoid space (SAS), which covers the spinal cord and the brain. During the cardiac cycle, it pulsates due to time-varying brain displacements. In this work, we study oscillating and steady streaming flow in cranial SAS in order to understand the mixing processes and waste clearance. We develop a theoretical model of the flow using lubrication theory. The model suggests that steady streaming plays an important role in mixing.
