MANE 4190 - Bio-Fluid Mechanics

This course introduces the fundamental circulatory bio-fluid mechanics, blood rheology, and governing laws of physiological blood flows. The course emphasizes theoretical and numerical modeling, analysis and simulation, and demonstrates these methods through application of study cases and research in clinical applications. The topics will cover fundamentals of fluid mechanics and physical principles of circulation, blood rheology: properties of flowing blood, blood flow in vessels, veins, coronary arteries, microcirculation, models of biofluids, computational biofluid mechanics and fluid in the lung.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: ENGR 2250 Thermal and Fluids Engineering I and MATH 2400 Introduction to Differential Equations.

When Offered: Spring term even-numbered years.

Cross Listed: MANE 6190.

Credit Hours: 3
