This paper investigates the effects of heat transfer and pulsatile flow of a Newtonian fluid (blood) through a vertical annulus with mild constriction on the outer wall while the inner wall represents the catheter tube. An analytical expression in terms of Bessel functions of the first and second kind is obtained for the heat and the velocity components. The variation of pressure gradient with steady flow rate is given as well as the wall shear stress distribution for different values of time… CONTINUE READING
