Abstract

Numerical simulation of the behaviour of blood flow through a stenosed bifurcated artery with the presence of single mild stenosis at parent artery is investigated. The flow analysis applies the incompressible, steady, three-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations for non-Newtonian generalized power law fluids. Behaviour of blood flow is simulated numerically using COMSOL Multiphysics that based on finite element method. The results show the effect of severity of stenosis on flow characteristics such as axial velocity and its exhibit flow recirculation zone for analysis on streamlines pattern.
