Blood flow field was resolved in a realistic geometry under the conditions of developing flow. Physiological data from a CT scan was used to construct the model geometry. The developing and intermittent flow through this model was analyzed after solving the three-dimensional Navier Stokes equations numerically. The results showed that the root mean square (RMS) wall shear stress was almost invariant for circumferential direction.
