Numerical simulations for blood flows related to cardiovascular diseases are presented. Differences in vessel morphologies produce different flow characteristics, stress distributions, and ultimately different outcomes. Some examples illustrating the effects of curvature and torsion on blood flows are presented both for simplified and patient-specific simulations. The goal of this study is to understand relationships between geometrical characteristics of blood vessels and blood flow behaviors.
