The Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) model of idealized aorta is developed to estimate the hemodynamic parameters. The transient CFD technique is used for the analysis. The wall of the aorta is treated as rigid. The blood flow is considered as laminar. The hemodynamic parameters such as velocity, wall pressure and wall shear stress (WSS) were calculated from the model. The flow velocity reached its maximum value (0.914 m/s) at peak systole. The wall pressure of aorta is decreased in flow direction at flow acceleration and diastole phase. The WSS is distributed uniformly in aorta model at all point of time. The measured hemodynamic parameters may help to understand the insights of flow in aorta.
