  • The well known Fahraeus effect (1929) states that if whole blood is allowed to flow from a large reservoir into a small circular cylindrical tube, the hematocrit in the tube is smaller than that in the reservoir, and the smaller the tube, the smaller will be the tube hematocrit. This is interpreted as a feature of particulate flow. We find that this relationship is not monotonic in a model experiment in which gelatin particles (circular disks) are suspended in a silicone fluid to simulate blood… CONTINUE READING
