Effect of body acceleration on unsteady pulsatile flow of non-newtonian fluid through a stenosed artery

The laminar two-dimensional pulsatile flow of blood under the influence of externally imposed periodic body acceleration through a stenosed artery is studied in the paper. A mathematical model is developed by treating blood as a non-Newtonian fluid characterised by the generalised Power-law model incorporating both the shear-thinning and shear-thickening… (More)
