Velocity distribution on the membrane of a tank-treading red blood cell.


The kinematics of an area-conserving tank-treading disk-shaped red blood cell membrane is studied using the stream function method suggested by Secomb and Skalak (Q. Jl Mech. appl. Math. 35, Pt 2, 233-247, 1982). Two simple area-conserving velocity fields are superimposed to satisfy the continuity condition at the curved edges of the disk. A differential… (More)
