Shear stress in organ on a chip

Shear stress on cells in an organ on a chip is due to the movement of culture medium on top of the cells. It is a force per unit area parallel to the cell layer.

Flow in a rectangular microchannel increases with flow rate but increases even faster with the height of the microchannel (with the power of 2).
