A mathematical study of two phase coronary blood flow using Herschel – Bulkley model during Angina
Sunita Mishra, V Upadhyay and AK Agrawal
In this mathematical modeling we are considering the two phase coronary blood flow in arterioles through heart during the angina. One phase is constituted by red blood cells and other phase is that of plasma. The heart has the highest oxygen consumption per tissue mass of all human organs. The resting coronary blood flow is 250ml/min; this represents 5% of cardiac output. We have applied the Herschel-Bulkley Non-Newtonian model in two phase coronary blood flow due to angina. The role of hematocrit is explicit in the determination of blood pressure drop in the case of angina heart diseases. The hematocrit increases as the blood pressure drop increases. The overall presentation is in tonsorial form and solution technique adopted is analytical as well as numerical.
