Description

Biofluid Mechanics: An Introduction to Fluid Mechanics, Macrocirculation, and Microcirculation, Third Edition shows how fluid mechanics principles can be applied not only to blood circulation, but also to air flow through the lungs, joint lubrication, intraocular fluid movement, renal transport, and other specialty circulations. This new edition contains new homework problems and worked examples, including MATLAB-based examples. In addition, new content has been added on such relevant topics as Womersley and Oscillatory Flows. With advanced topics in the text now denoted for instructor convenience, this book is particularly suitable for both senior and graduate-level courses in biofluids.

Key Features

  • Uses language and math that is appropriate and conducive for undergraduate and first-year graduate learning
  • Contains new worked examples and end-of-chapter problems
  • Covers topics in the traditional biofluids curriculum, also addressing other systems in the body
  • Discusses clinical applications throughout the book, providing practical applications for the concepts discussed
  • Includes more advanced topics to help instructors teach an undergraduate course without a loss of continuity in the class

Readership

Upper level undergraduate and graduate students in biomedical engineering and mechanical engineering

About the Authors

David Rubenstein

Dr. Rubenstein focuses on two major research areas: vascular tissue engineering and the initiation/progression of cardiovascular diseases mediated through platelet and endothelial cell interactions.

Affiliations and Expertise

Associate Professor and Graduate Program Director, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY.

Wei Yin

Dr. Yin conducts research into coronary artery disease, specifically how altered blood flow and stress distribution affect platelet and endothelial cell behavior and lead to cardiovascular disease initiation.

Affiliations and Expertise

Associate Professor and Undergraduate Program Director, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY, USA

Mary Frame

The focus of Dr. Frame’s research is in integrating signal transduction events with physical properties of blood flow at the microvascular level, with the long term research goal of understanding the two phase question of how solute distribution and transport are coupled in the microcirculation.
