Numerical solutions of the steady viscous flow in the neighborhood of different double stenoses are obtained under laminar flow conditions with the motivation for modeling blood flow through stenosed artery formed due to arterial disease. The flowing blood is considered to be incompressible and Newtonian. A finite volume method has been employed to solve the governing equations. The dynamics of flow features have been studied by wall pressure, streamline contour, and wall shear stress distributions for all models. The results have demonstrated that when the shapes of stenosis change at primary stenosis keeping no change in the shape of secondary stenosis, the impact of changes in primary stenosis on secondary one is noted to be more, whereas, no impact of primary stenosis on secondary stenosis and vice versa is observed in case of changes in the shapes of secondary stenosis keeping no change in the shape of primary stenosis. When Reynolds number changes, the impact of changes in primary stenosis on secondary one is also noted to be higher.
