  • Abstract

Pulsatile blood flows in curved atherosclerotic arteries are studied by computer simulations. Computations are carried out with various values of physiological parameters to examine the effects of flow parameters on the disturbed flow patterns downstream of a curved artery with a stenosis at the inner wall. The numerical results indicate a strong dependence of flow pattern on the blood viscosity and inlet flow rate, while the influence of the inlet flow profile to the flow pattern in downstream is negligible.

  • Keywords

Curved artery, atherosclerosis, blood flow, wall shear stress, flow pattern.
