MECH 492 Biofluids F | 3.5


Lecture: 3
Lab: 0
Tutorial: 0.5
This course presents some of the applications of fluid mechanics in human biomechanical systems. The course centres on the human circulatory and respiratory systems. Topics covered will include: blood flow in the heart, arteries, veins and microcirculation; air flow in the lungs and airways; mass transfer across the walls of these systems. Experimental tools for use in biomedical applications will be emphasized. Students are expected to have experimental and fluids knowledge typically acquired in MECH 215 /MECH 241 /MECH 341 . Those who have not taken these or similar courses will need to prepare through self study.
