Abstract

From a qualitative analysis it has been suggested that during the momentum transport computations, it is necessary to recognize a pure alignment process and an alignment with deformation process for the red blood cell (RBC). It has been contended that energy is supplied for the latter process, and that the energy supplied could be released by the membrane of RBC. This energy, when released, is responsible for the random movements of RBC, the collisions between RBC, the orientation of RBC and the disaggregation of RBC. Once that energy is accounted for, the above mentioned processes do not call for extra expenditure of energy.
