Abstract: The problem of blood flow through stenoses is solved using the incompressible generalized Newtonian model. The Herschel-Bulkley, Bingham and power-law fluids are incorporated. The geometry corresponds to a rigid circular tube with a partial occlusion. Calculations are performed by a Galerkin finite-element method. For the pulsatile case, a predictor-corrector time marching scheme is used with an adaptive time step. Results are obtained for steady and pulsatile physiological flows. Computations show that the me…
