This paper studies a constitutive equation for blood with the transport of nanoparticles in a stenosed microvessel. The flow of blood through a bell-shaped stenosed micro blood vessel has been investigated with an importance of permeable walls that treats blood as nonNewtonian fluid by using K-L model. This model is more appropriate than other nonNewtonian models because K-L model involve three parameters such as plasma viscosity, yield stress and one other chemical variable while casson model… 


Time dependent dispersion of nanoparticles in blood vessels
The work of Gill and Sankarasubramanian was modified and extended to include 1) the variati- on over time of Deff; 2) the permeability of the blood vessels and 3) non-Newtonian rheology of blood.
The Transport of Nanoparticles in Blood Vessels: The Effect of Vessel Permeability and Blood Rheology
Both the rheology of blood and the permeability of the vessels may constitute a physiological barrier to the intravascular delivery of nanoparticles.
A study of non-Newtonian aspects of blood flow through stenosed arteries and its applications in arterial diseases.
Blood flow through a stenosed artery has been investigated and it is observed that the wall shear stress and the flow resistance increase in Herschel-Bulkley fluid in comparison with corresponding Newtonian fluid.
The Effective Dispersion of Nanovectors Within the Tumor Microvasculature
It has been shown that the blood conduits with the largest effective longitudinal diffusivity could be preferentially targeted by the circulating vectors and it has been emphasized that the size of the vector should be selected depending on the body district where the tumoral mass is developing and on the type, malignancy, and state of the tumor.
Pulsatile flow of Casson's fluid through stenosed arteries with applications to blood flow.
The effects of non-Newtonian nature of blood and pulsatility on flow through a stenosed tube have been investigated and an exact solution for this non-linear equation is obtained.
Influence of Red Blood Cells on Nanoparticle Targeted Delivery in Microcirculation.
A particle-cell hybrid model is developed to model NP transport, dispersion, and binding dynamics in blood suspension, which will provide mechanistic insights on the nanomedicine design for targeted drug delivery applications.

Under similar conditions in Casson and power law fluids, both simplified models for blood, and in Bingham fluids the same proportionalities are found, although the proportionality factor is dependent upon the specific rheology of the fluid.

When a soluble substance is introduced into a fluid flowing slowly through a small-bore tube it spreads out under the combined action of molecular diffusion and the variation of velocity over the

Sir Geoffrey Taylor has recently discussed the dispersion of a solute under the simultaneous action of molecular diffusion and variation of the velocity of the solvent. A new basis for his analysis
