For transient shear stress responses at moderate shear rates, predictions of a Non-Linear Maxwell model, in which the viscosity coefficient is assumed to depend on the instantaneous structural state of the material, are compared to measurements on normal blood (McMillan et al., 1986). This is carried out on a modified viscometer which incorporates a dynamic… CONTINUE READING
