An Analytical Study of Pulsatile Flow of a Power Law Fluid in a Constricted Tube

J. Prakash (Botswana) and A. Ogulu (South Africa)


Blood Flow, Constricted Tube


A mathematical model for the pulsatile blood flow in a small vessel in the cardiovascular system with a mild stenosis is analyzed. Blood is modelled as a power law fluid and the differential approximation for the heat flux is invoked in the energy equation. The effect of heat transfer on the velocity is computed and discussed.
