Abstract

A mathematical model for the flow of human blood through an artery bifurcation is studied using finite element analysis (FEA). The FEA has been applied for a two-dimensional steady flow of an in-viscous fluid through different geometries. The flow through a two-dimensional model of a carotid artery bifurcation has been simulated. The velocity profiles through the bifurcation branches were computed. The validity of the computational method was established by comparing the numerical results with other findings
