AB - This paper is concerned with the numerical simulation of a thermodynamically compatible
viscoelastic shear-thinning fluid model, particularly well suited to describe the
rheological response of blood, under physiological conditions. Numerical simulations are
performed in two idealized three-dimensional geometries, a stenosis and a curved vessel,
to investigate the combined effects of flow inertia, viscosity and viscoelasticity in
these geometries. The aim of this work is to provide new insights into the modeling and
