In consideration of the pulsatile blood flow in a conduit, the consitutive equation for the whole human blood of F. J. Walburn and D. J. Schneck (Biorheology , Vol. 13, 1976, pp. 201-210) is utilized. Governing equations are solved numerically yielding the velocity and the shear stress distributions. These results are discussed and compared with the Newtonian fluid, Casson’s fluid, and Bingham fluid applications.
