Acoustic measurement of compressibility and thermal expansion coefficient of erythrocytes.

Abstract

Mechanical properties of human erythrocytes, namely adiabatic compressibility and thermal expansion coefficient, have been determined using a classical ultrasound velocity and attenuation burst transmission technique. The theoretical model concerns the corpuscular part of the elastic wave propagating in a suspension of viscous particles of small size… (More)
