Idealization of pericellular fluid space geometry and dimension results in a profound underprediction of nano-microscale stresses imparted by fluid drag on osteocytes.

Abstract

To date, no published study has examined quantitatively the effect of geometric and dimensional idealization on prediction of the mechanical signals imparted by fluid drag to cell surfaces. We hypothesize that this idealization affects the magnitude and range of imparted forces predicted to occur at a subcellular level. Hence, we used computational fluid… (More)
