We investigate theoretically the periodic shear environment of a cone-and-plate bioreactor. The imposed frequency is designated to reflect the periodic nature of mammalian cardiac cycles. The working formula obtained for the distribution of shear stresses shall be of substantial interest for applying periodic shear stresses to cell cultures in vitro.
