Covers macro- and micro-rheological techniques for measuring the material properties of complex biofluids and the subtleties of data interpretation
Part I: Introduction to Complex Fluids.- Introduction to complex fluids.- Complex fluids and soft structures in the human body.- Part II: Rheology of Complex Biological Fluids.- Theoretical microrheology.- Membrane rheology.- Rheology and mechanics of the cell cytoskeleton.- Experimental challenges of shear rheology: how to avoid bad data.-Part III: Locomotion and Active Matter.- Locomotion through complex fluids: an experimental view.- Theory of locomotion through complex fluids.- Theory of active suspensions.- Part IV: Computational Methods.- Computational challenges for simulating strongly elastic flows in biology.- Cell distribution and segregation phenomena during blood flow.
This book serves as an introduction to the continuum mechanics and mathematical modeling of complex fluids in living systems. The form and function of living systems are intimately tied to the nature of surrounding fluid environments, which commonly exhibit nonlinear and history dependent responses to forces and displacements. With ever-increasing capabilities in the visualization and manipulation of biological systems, research on the fundamental phenomena, models, measurements, and analysis of complex fluids has taken a number of exciting directions. In this book, many of the world's foremost experts explore key topics such as:
