This paper studies the effects of Reynolds number on the oscillating flow in through a one-point stenosed artery. The nonlinear equations governing the flow are solved analytically by the method of perturbation series solutions. Expressions for the velocities and wall shear stress are obtained and analyzed graphically. It is found that increase in the Reynolds number increases the velocities and wall shear stress. Similarly, it is seen that a flow separation occurs in the radial velocity flow structure.
