Cardiovascular diseases are very common in today’s world. It is of great physiological significance to simulate the behavior of diseased arteries using computational methods, as it will help the clinicians in the early diagnoses of the disease. This paper reviews the application of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), for simulating blood flow phenomenon in human arteries. The use of the CFD in simulating the anatomically realistic models is discussed. Various methodologies applied for assessing the effectiveness in predicting the behavior of blood flow in arteries is presented. Finally comprehensive literature related to Newtonian and non-Newtonian behavior of blood flow in artery and the limitations in such assumptions are discussed
