A viscoelastic fluid model for describing the mechanics of a coarse ligated plasma clot Academic Article uri icon


  • Thrombi are formed at the end of a series of complex biochemical processes. There are various types of thrombi, and their rheological properties change depending on the conditions during clot formation. In this paper, a model for a particular type of clot, formed from human plasma, is proposed within a thermodynamic framework that recognizes that viscoelastic fluids possess multiple natural configurations.
