Velocity profiles, as determined in vivo in rabbit mesenteric arterioles with fluorescently labeled platelets as natural flow markers, were used to calculate least estimates of the actual wall shear rate in these microvessels (17-32 micron diam). The fit of the velocity data points described the profile as close to the wall as 0.5 micron. To satisfy the no-slip condition, a thin layer of fluid with a steep velocity gradient near the wall was assumed. Least estimates of wall shear rate, as… CONTINUE READING
