A lumped parameter compartmental model for the cerebrovascular fluid system is constructed and solved for the general linear problem of a nonsteady flow with constant resistances and compliances. The model predicts the intracranial pressure waves in the various compartments of the brain in response to pressure changes in the vascular system.
