A parametric CAD model of the human carotid artery bifurcation is employed in an initial exploration of the response of shear stress to the variation of the angle of the internal carotid artery and the width of the sinus bulb. Design of experiment and response surface technologies are harnessed for the first time in such an application with the aim of developing a better understanding of the relationship between geometry (anatomy) and sites of arterial disease.
