The computational mechanical analysis of blood flow in the human aortic arch with complex 3-D configuration was presented. Coordinate data for the centerline was extracted for the aorta and three branches from the 3-D reconstructed MR image. It was shown that the flow field in the present model was different from that in the model without the branches.
