In the paper we carry out the calculation mechanical properties and intracellular pressure of erythrocytes
by finite element method and comparison of these data to the experimental data obtained using
atomic force microscopy. The paper proposes a model of the erythrocyte representing the erythrocyte as a
homogeneous elastic body with the elasticity depending on the distance to the center of the erythrocyte.
The model is based on data from atomic force microscopy obtained by various authors, in particular the data
on rigidity of the membrane, which depends on the position of the measuring point on the surface. The
good agreement between calculated and experimental data confirms the consistency of the model and allows
us to conclude that the morphology of the erythrocyte is largely determined by the elastic properties
of the membrane and intercellular pressure.
