Temperature dependence of the yield shear resultant and the plastic viscosity coefficient of erythrocyte membrane. Implications about molecular events during membrane failure.

Abstract

Structural failure of the erythrocyte membrane in shear deformation occurs when the maximum shear resultant (force/length) exceeds a critical value, the yield shear resultant. When the yield shear resultant is exceeded, the membrane flows with a rate of deformation characterized by the plastic viscosity coefficient. The temperature dependence of the yield… (More)
