To obtain more insight into the complex blood flow patterns in the carotid artery bifurcation numerical analyses, limited to Newtonian incompressible flows in rigid-wall geometries, have been carried out combined with laser-Doppler velocity measurements. The steady and unsteady flow in two-dimensional models of a stenosis and of the carotid artery bifurcation were analysed. As a first step to a three-dimensional analysis, the steady flow development in a curved tube was investigated.
