Blood exhibits a yield  stress obeys Casson constitutive relationship Behaves like a solid for  τ  <  τ y Behaves like a liquid for  τ     τ y

Blood behaves like a Casson material (has a yield stress) at shear rates < 36 sec -1 , a Pseudoplastic (nonlinear) at intermediate shear rates and a Newtonian fluid at shear rates > 50 sec -1 . (Shear stress) 1/2 (Shear rate) 1/2 √τ y
