A phenomenological model for platelet cumulative damage was developed to express the platelet activation state (PAS) in response to a specific shear stress loading waveform. genetic algorithms (GAs) were used for model identification. The model was fine-tuned using parameters obtained in vitro by application of a shear stress loading waveform to a(More)
