Abstract: In recent decades, the biomechanical properties of human red blood cells (RBCs) have been greatly explored by numerous researchers for diverse reasons. In normal physiological conditions, RBCs undergoes large deformation when traversing thin microcapillaries, however, upon infection by different blood-related diseases such as malaria, they experience impaired deformability. This paper examines how biomechanical properties of RBCs change with temperature using a multiscale meshfree method. The multiscale meshfree method offers improved accuracy and better computational efficiency as it incorporates RBC membrane microstructural configuration into its constitutive formulation, thereby providing better insights into the changes on the atomistic level.
