Surname 1 Student’s Name: Professor’s Name: Course: Date: Unsteady, Three-Dimensional Fluid Mechanic Analysis of Blood Flow in Plaque-Narrowed and Plaque-Freed Arteries Fluid flow in a conduit with characteristics such as uniform area at both the inlet and outlet and surface area is likely to have a uniform flowrate as long as the temperature remains constant. If temperature varies, then, there is a likelihood of changes in viscosity, density, and velocity, hence the flow rate. A conduit with a non-uniform surface area causes turbulent flow, which in turn, affects the flowrate along its layout. Using an example of blood flow in arteries of different surfaces, Abraham et al. demonstrates how the nature of surface of a conduit affects the flow rate. The authors used a mathematical modeling to implement fluid mechanic model. They also exploited Newtonian and non-Newtonian equations to reconstruct arterial geometries they applied for analysis. The results indicated that removal of plaque enhanced the flowrate of blood in both the systole and diastole phases of the cycle. They
