The effect of the aortic arch atherosclerotic formations on blood mass flow distribution is determined experimentally on the aortic arch model, derived from x-ray traces, for the average values of the governing parameters: Reynolds number, unsteadiness parameter, and velocity fluctuation parameter. A computer program incorporating the experimrntal data is developed, which predicts approximately the flow distribution for various arterial blockages.
