Biofluid Mechanics: Principles and Applications is a comprehensive reference covering the physiology and engineering aspects of biofluids that is written with engineers and clinicians in mind. This book bridges the gap between the knowledge base of both engineers and clinicians, providing information on physiology for engineers and information on the engineering side of biofluid mechanics for clinicians. In addition, clinical applications of fluid mechanics principles to fluid flows throughout the body are included.
All engineering concepts and equations are developed within a biological context, and computational simulation examples are provided. Content covered includes engineering models of human blood, blood rheology in the circulation system, problems in human organs, and their side effects on biomechanics of the cardiovascular system.
- Provides comprehensive coverage of the subject of biofluid mechanics in one reference, eliminating the need to collate information from different sources
- Chapters cover the principles, needs, problems, and solutions to help users identify potential problems and employ solutions
- Presents a novel breakdown of fluid flow by organ system, providing a quick and focused reference for clinicians
