ME 7980: Cardiovascular Biofluid Mechanics

Course description

This graduate-level course describes the intricate relations between the fluid mechanics and biomedical aspects of the cardiovascular system. By the end of this course, students will be able to:
- Identify, recognize and define biofluid mechanics concepts in relation to the cardiovascular system
- Model the flow and fluid-structure interactions in cardiovascular structures
- Apply this knowledge to analyze clinical research problems

The topics to be covered include:
1. Introduction
2. Physiology of organ systems
3. Body fluid-solid mechanics
4. Mathematical modeling
5. Computational techniques
6. Measurement techniques
7. Diagnostics and treatments
