Asset Details

  • Description:
  • Orbit change of flipping red blood cells (RBCs) in a shear flow when the shear rate γ˙ increases. (a) Schematic view of the flipping motion, (b) Observations along the flow gradient. Flipping of one RBC in dextran solution (105 g/mol, c = 9% w/w). (i) γ˙=2s−1, time sequence of 10.6 s, scale bar = 10 μm. (ii) γ˙=6s−1 time sequence of 3.72 s, and (iii) γ˙=12s−1, time sequence of 3.84 s (from Ref ) (c) Skematic view of the rolling motion.
