Abstract: In this paper, we develop a three dimensional model of blood flow through curved arteries with asymmetric stenoses. Firstly, the Navier-Stokes equations representing Newtonian flow are solved using PHOENICS, a computational fluid dynamics package which utilises the Finite Volume method of solution. The severity of the stenoses considered in this study vary from about 40% to about 70%. Subsequently, the model is solved for Reynolds numbers ranging from 100 to 1200. The pressure drop results show good agreement with published results. The results also show that stenoses on a bent artery has a significant effect on blood flow characteristics.
