Non-Newtonian analysis of blood-flow
The flow of blood is a non-Newtonian phenomenon, best described by Bingham fluids. We have given the basic balance equations and criteria. Due to the huge variation of the vessel diameters and consequently the complete flow behaviours of the blood in the actual vessel, we describe the similarities of flows.
