Manisha -, Vinay Nasha, Surendra Kumar

Abstract


The objective of this paper is to present a non-Newtonian blood flow model with the effect of different geometry of stenosis on various flow quantities. The Power-law model is considered to explore the non-Newtonian property of blood. Two-point Gauss quadrature formula is applied to obtain the numerical expressions of dimensionless flow resistance, skin-friction and flow rate.  The variation of dimensionless flow resistance, skin-friction and flow rate with degree of stenosis, axial distance and power-law index is shown graphically. Moreover, the power-law index is adjusted to explore the non-Newtonian characteristics of blood. The importance of the present work has been carried out by comparing the results with other theories both numerically and graphically. It has been found that resistance to flow becomes maximum with total blockage of artery for different shape of stenosis.
