Large Eddy Simulation (LES) is performed to study the physiological pulsatile transition to turbulent non-Newtonian blood flow through a 3D model of arterial stenosis using the different non-Newtonian blood viscosity models. The computational domain has been chosen is a simple channel with a biological type stenosis formed eccentrically on the top wall. The physiological pulsation is generated at the inlet of the model using the fourth harmonic of the Fourier series of the physiological pressure pulse (Womersley [1]). The computational results are presented in terms of the post-stenotic re-circulation\ud zone, shear stress, mean and turbulent kinetic energy.
  • The results below are discovered through our pilot algorithms. Let us know how we are doing!
