This paper investigates the mathematical modelling of the biomagnetic fluid (human blood) flow, subjected to externally imposed various non-uniform magnetic fields. The three dimensional numerical simulation of a fully developed laminar blood flow in a long horizontal cylinder (steady Navier-Stokes equation) was verified by the analytical solution of Poiseuille flow. In allowing for the effect s of the magnetic fields, the steady Navier-Stokes equations of the flow are expanded to include the Lorentz and magnetization forces. The model was used in a parametric study invol ving arteries with and without stenosis and aneurysm. It can be concluded that an imposed non-uniform magnetic field can create significant changes in the secondary flow patterns. Such behaviours can have interesting consequences especially in the optimization of the magnetically targeted drug delivery.
