Rheology (⊂ρϵω: to flow, water/blood flow, ⊂ρϵυ̑μα: flow, flux, λόγσ: dissertation) is the study of material deformation and flow under stresses. The rheology of both the flowing blood and loading walls of the cardiovascular system has been investigated. Soft biological tissues are characterized not only by time-dependent non-linear rheological behavior exhibited by their composite anisotropic poroviscoelastic (commonly involving flowing fluid) materials, which are irrigated (living tissues) and innervated (short-range history of such controlled materials), but also by tissue growth, remodeling, and aging (midand long-range history).
