    Abstract

    The effects of stenosis growth on the flow properties of blood in the bifurcation region of the carotid artery are considered. Details of the blood flow are simulated using the lattice Boltzmann method and the development of the stenosis is simulated in regions where there is a low velocity and low wall shear stress. The model is applied to investigate the near-wall haemodynamics, at different stages of stenosis development, over a cardiac cycle.
    Variations in time-averaged flow parameters are also considered.
