Ultrasonic waves have variety of applications in bio field. The most important applications are diagnosis and treatment of diseases, drug delivery, cell separation and cell study. Passing ultrasonic waves through tissues and organs, which creates heat, bubble, stress and vibration, can result in chemical reactions, physical and biological changes. What exacerbated the researchers' scientific activities in this area is reducing the harmful effects and increasing the usefulness of this beneficial tool. In current research, the interaction of two nonlinear phenomena, acoustic streaming due to passing ultrasonic waves through bio-fluid and non-Newtonian viscosity is studied numerically. Taking into account nonlinear effects of ultrasonic field, continuity, momentum and state equations are used. In this paper, parametric effects of wall impedance, inlet flow velocity and non-Newtonian viscosity models on acoustic streaming are investigated. Results indicate influence of inlet speed on acoustic streaming velocity magnitude and its ineffectiveness on acoustic streaming profile. By increasing wall impedance, acoustic streaming magnitude decreases. This reduction is more intensive for non-Newtonian fluid. Considering non-Newtonian viscosity model for bio-fluid leads to velocity changes near boundaries, while it has less influence at domain middle.
