This lesson covers the concept of viscoelasticity, its application in understanding the rheological behaviour of blood, and the mathematical models used to represent this behaviour. It explains how blood can behave as both a Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluid under different conditions. The lesson also introduces the concept of Deborah and Weissenberg numbers, which are used to characterize the viscoelastic behaviour of fluids. It further discusses the spring-dashpot model, a simple model used to represent the rheological behaviour of viscoelastic fluids. The lesson concludes with a brief discussion on the oscillatory shearing motion and the complex viscoelastic behavior of blood.

- Viscoelasticity is a property of materials that exhibit both viscous and elastic characteristics when undergoing deformation.
