This article illustrates numerical results on pulsating blood flow through moderately stenosed blood vessel. Two kinds of waveform, that is, a purely sinusoidal waveform and a non-sinusoidal one just like human blood flow are calculated for two cases of heart rate as 60 and 160 (1/s), and resultant flow behavior such as flow velocities, secondary flow, wall shear stress and pressure change are discussed. The abrupt changes in the pressure and wall shear stress occur on the throat of the stenosis, suggesting that this part is easily damaged by the effects when the heart rate is increased.
