Abstract


The Finite Element Simulation of steady state flow of blood in carotid artery bifurcation is performed using Taylor-Galerkin Finite Element Method. Simulation is performed Reynolds number 10 to observe the behavior of the blood flow. Generalized Newtonian fluid is considered for the blood flow simulation. The obtained results are compared with the Newtonian model. The results show that generalized non-Newtoian model has not influenced the general formation of the blood flow. The parameter of interest in this paper is to observe the behavior of secondary velocity, wall shear stress. In the results, small discrepancies have been observed in the parameters of interest between Newtonian and non-Newtonian blood flow simulations.
