Subject areas. Engineering, Computational Mechanics and Biomechanics. Start date. April 2019. Project description. Red blood cells (RBCs) are fundamentally important component of human blood due to their unique connection with human health.
Proportions of the energy dissipated during deformation of particulate materials are converted to heat and sound. The high-frequency (>10kHz) component of this sound energy is called acoustic emission (AE).
Understanding mechanical properties and performance of various biological materials and tissues and their responses to different loading and environmental conditions is becoming increasingly important for development of new medical procedures and devices.
