BMED 6350 - Fluid Dynamics and Transport in the Vascular Circulation

The principles of convective diffusion in liquids are discussed as applied to the vascular circulation. Topics include: convective and diffusion boundary layers in internal flows with reacting and/or permeable walls, Taylor dispersion, microhydrodynamics of macromolecules and particles, Brownian motion, mass transport to arterial walls and across cell membranes. This course is intended for first year graduate students in Biomedical Engineering and undergraduate seniors with permission of the instructor.

When Offered: Spring term, even-numbered years.

Credit Hours: 3
