This course in Biological Fluid Mechanics is the study of fluid flow in major human organ systems, and fluid flow within and over some selected medical devices and implants. This study involves, as an example, an introduction to engineering models for Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids, creeping flow, laminar and turbulent flow, flow through flexible tissue, pressures and flow in the circulatory and pulmonary systems, lubrication between joints, microfluidics.
