Red blood cell partitioning and blood flux redistribution in microvascular bifurcation
The sketch of the RBC in microvascular bifurcation.
RBC deformation and partitioning in microvessel bifurcation: (a) , (b) , and (c) .
Velocity profiles on the inlet, outlet 1 and outlet 2 at three typical instants: (solid line), (dashed line) and (dash-dotted line).
Streamlines passing the bifurcation point and configurations of RBC at three typical instants.
Pressure distribution at three instants: (a), (c) and (e) are the pressure field in the vessel; (b), (d) and (f) are the pressure distributions along the centerline of the vessel. In (b), (d) and (f), the solid line is the mother vessel-daughter branch 1, the dashed line is the mother vessel-daughter branch 2, and is the horizontal coordinate along the centerline.
