Considering the elastic response of the membrane of a lipid vesicle (artificial cell) in an arbitrary three-dimensional shear flow, we derive analytical predictions of vesicle shape and membrane tension for vesicles close to a spherical shape. Large amplitude deviations from sphericity are described using boundary integral numerical simulations. Two possible modes of vesicle rupture are found and compared favourably with experiments: (i) for large enough shear rates the tension locally exceeds… CONTINUE READING
