CFD analysis plays an important role in the area of analysis of blood flow as in-vivo measurements of blood flow is costly and easily not accessible. This paper presents simulation of blood flow in healthy and stenosed coronary artery 2- D models. The simulation was done considering non-Newtonian behavior of blood and pulsatile nature of blood flow which is close to physical scenario. Pressure distribution, velocity distribution and wall shear were examined to understand their effect on Atherosclerosis.
