Abstract. In this work, numerical simulation for biomagnetic fluid (such as blood) flowing through a tube with a rectangular cross section is studied under the influence of the magnetic field. The effects of the magnetic field on the blood stream in a tube are generated outside the tube with a permanent magnet. COMSOL Multiphysics® Modeling Software has been used to numerically solve the motion equations that describe the flow by combining magnetic equations for permanent magnet and Navier-Stokes equation for fluid (blood).

Keywords: Newtonian fluid, non-Newtonian fluid, permanent magnet, computational modeling.
