Unsteady blood flow characterized by micropolar fluid in a stenosed artery under the influence of a uniform magnetic field is considered. The governing equations in the cylindrical coordinate system are discretized and solved using the Marker and Cell (MAC) method, where the pressure is calculated iteratively using the Successive-OverRelaxation (SOR) method. The outcomes are tested for numerical stability with desired degree of accuracy. The results carried out include the flow-field profiles of blood, the wall shear stress and the streamlines. The results also predict the pressure drop across the multiple stenoses and show that the pressure drop gets the highest value when it crosses both stenoses. Blood flow contours have been plotted to understand the flow pattern in the diseased artery, which alters significantly in the downstream of the stenosis in the presence of a magnetic field.
