pulsalite flow of blood,spherical particle ,shear stress, artery ,


The effect of magnetic field on pulsatile flow of blood through an artery is considered treating blood be a suspension of small uniformly sizes spherical particles. Following an iterative scheme, the solution with three significant correction terms over the classical solution is obtained. The numerical computation of velocities (of the suspension and the particles) for varying radial coordinates and the wall shear strees for varying time are carrid out, graphed and discussed.
