This paper explores the change in force required within the blood vessels of the body if blood were not a shear-thinning liquid but Newtonian or shear-thickening. We found that for a Newtonian blood, the force would need to be 5.4 times the magnitude of actual blood, and for shear-thickening it would need to be 31.4 times as great.
