Numerical simulation of the behaviour of blood flow through a stenosed bifurcated
artery with the presence of single mild stenosis at parent artery is investigated. The
flow analysis applies the incompressible, steady, three-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations
for non-Newtonian generalized power law fluids. Behaviour of blood flow is simulated
numerically using COMSOL Multiphysicsthat based on finite element method.The
results showthe effect of severity of stenosis on flow characteristics such as axial velocity
and its exhibit flow recirculation zone for analysis on streamlines pattern.
