This paper intends to study a real-life
application of fluid mechanics in cardiovascular blood
flow. The study of blood flow is termed as
Hemodynamics. Fluid mechanics can be used to analyze
the factors and impact of obstruction in blood flow due
to fat, cholesterol, and plaque deposits in the coronary
arteries of the human heart. These blockages are the
grounds for coronary artery diseases and heart attacks.
We will look at varying parameters of flowrate and
pressure for different thicknesses of epicardial fat as
well as define a relationship between these three.
