BME 343 Biotransport

Transport principles with biological applications. Course covers hydrostatics and consequent blood pressure variation throughout the circulatory system; Starling resistors, as a model of vascular flow; surface tension and its effect on lung mechanics; the Reynold’s transport theorem; conservation of mass and equations of motion for fluids, such as vascular blood and air in the lungs; and diffusive transport, responsible for solute movement across the endothelium.
