Abstract: Over the past few decades, stroke has become one of the most common cause deaths. The heart muscle, like every other organ or tissue in our body, needs oxygen-rich blood to survive. Coronary artery disease means narrowing of the coronary arteries. This narrowing is due to a buildup of plaque in the walls of the arteries. Computational simulations provide invaluable information that is extremely difficult to obtain experimentally and is one of the many CFD sample applications in the biomedical area in which blood flow through an abnormal artery can be predicted. CFD analysis is increasingly performed to study fluid phenomena inside the human vascular system. In this paper, the study is to develop 3D CFD model of the Coronary artery to observe the blood flow through artery and estimate some of the hemodynamic parameters of blood during systolic and diastolic phase with plaque formation in artery. Hemodynamic parameters were quantified and flow patterns are visualized in the presence of plaques by using CFD.
