    Abstract: The flow of blood through arteries is an important physiological problem. In the present investigation, we carried out to study the peristaltic of non-Newtonian incompressible blood flow with heat transfer through ciliated arteries. The blood flow is characterized by the generalized Sisko model. The nonlinear partial differential equations of the p... Show More

    Abstract: Throughflow calculations are still an inevitable step in the aerodynamic design of compressors. The viscous throughflow model derived from Navier-Stokes equations can be more capable in predicting choked flow and capturing shock waves compared to the traditional methods. In this paper, authors further developed the inviscid model for a previously d... Show More
