A mathematical model for pulsatile flow in a partially occluded tube is presented. The problem has applications in studying the effects of blood flow characteristics on atherosclerotic development. The model brings out the importance of the pulsatility of blood flow on separation and the stress distribution. The results obtained show fairly good agreement with the available experimental results.
