Effect of Types of Fluids on Fluid Flow Characteristics in Bifurcated Vessel using CFD Simulation

Dewang, Yogesh ; Panthi, S K


The present study focuses on the CFD analysis of bifurcated blood vessel using ABAQUS /CFD 6.14 software in order to investigate the effect of types of fluids on resultant velocity and axial velocities of flow. It has been found that out of resultant velocity and axial velocity in three mutually perpendicular directions, types of fluids have significant influence on velocity in z-direction. A significant increment of nearly 45 % in maximum velocity in z-direction has been obtained from benzene to Newtonian blood.
