Abstract

Study of flow characteristics and viscoelastic parameters of tumor cells in cancer growth V.K. Katiyar & K.S. Basavarajappa Department of Mathematics I.I. T Roorkee Roorkee - 247667, India Abstract A mathematical model is presented which takes into account the most important events of diseased (Cancerous) cells associated with the mechanical behavior, and proliferation. Magnitude of the effector E, and complexes E, reflect the existence of cell deformation and locomotion. Generally the accumulation of cancerous cells which replicate in accordance with some law which is taken to be shear-induced form. Velocity of 0.055mm/sec, proliferation range 0-200 (numbers), decrease in viscosity (<3.5cp) are employed in numerical computations in reference to tumor cells. The resulting deformation rate is approximated to be 1.275sec-'. The binding of the diseased cell sets up from the location of the arrest. The stimulus of the blood shear environment induces the viscoelastic nature and the limitations of
