Blood flow is modeled as non-Newtonian micropolar fluid. The non-linear governing equations of continuum and momentum in the cylindrical coordinate are being discretized using a finite difference approach and have been solved iteratively ,through Crank-Nicolson method. The blood velocity distribution, volumetric flow rate and Resistance to blood flow at the stenosis throat are computed for various values of angle of tapering, amplitudes of body acceleration and Hartman number.
