Abstract : The flow of mixtures of solid particles and fluids is a common occurrence both in nature and in industrial processes. The flows of such dispersions exhibit many so-called non-Newtonian properties. The purpose of the paper is to explore one of these phenomena -- the changes that occur close to a solid surface in the flow. This effect has viscosity effects have particular significance in a mammalian circulation system where the major resistance to flow occurs in vessels whose diameters (say 20 to 200 microns) are comparable to the diameter (about 8 microns) of red blood cells -- the main particulate matter in blood.
