BIOE360: Transport and Flow in Bioengineering

Course Objectives

Describe the importance of transport phenomena across a variety of biomedical applications

Describe modes of heat transfer: conduction, convection, radiation

Describe modes of mass transfer: diffusion, dispersion, and convection

Select and implement appropriate governing equations and boundary conditions to solve simpler transport problems (heat, mass, and fluids)

Understand the importance and utility of simulation software for modeling transport phenomena (heat, mass, and fluids)
