6 BMME 455: BioFluid Mechanics (3 cr.) Fluid mechanics is a broad area that can describe the transport of materials in biological systems, such as the flow of blood circulation, or airflow through the lungs, but also covers the transport of materials through mechanical systems, such as micro- and nanochannels. Interestingly, fluid transport can be driven either hydrodynamically, chemically or electrokinetically. This course will start with a basic survey of the governing principles that describe transport, both turbulent and laminar, in mechanical and biological systems, present the governing equations at different length-scales and show examples of their usage. Examples will clearly show the applications of fluid mechanics to biomedical engineering. A section of experimental techniques to monitor fluid dynamics, such as particle image velocity, will provide a springboard for future research efforts in this subject area.
