Part of the IFMBE Proceedings book series (IFMBE, volume 31)


The present study a mathematical model for blood flow in narrow arteries in the presence of porous effect has been investigated. It is assumed that there is a lubricating layer between red blood cells and tube wall. The analysis of fluid flow between red cell and tube wall, when the cell appears to be at rest and the capillary wall moving backwards, is made. The effect of porous on the flow is examined. The computational results are shown through graphs to describe the effect of various parameters on velocity profile, leak-back flow rate and skin friction.
