Relation between cell circumferential strain ε and the local dimensionless shear rate G *. A nonlinear regression fit of results for the single cell in simple shear flow and multi-cells in channel flow indicates the validity of the ε and G* characterizations for general shearing conditions on the 2D RBC profile ε = 0.1771 e 0.0611 G * + 0.1771 ; R Single 2 = 0.996 and R Multi 2 = 0.939 .
