Review of basic mechanisms of transport; transport through vascular system and blood-tissue exchange processes in organs; integrated system analysis of closed systems and applications to physiological regulation, medical imaging, and pharmacokinetics. Prerequisite: calculus, introduction to differential equations; cardiovascular physiology; E E network analysis or systems analysis, chemical engineering transport.
Purpose of course is to introduce advanced principles of combined momentum, energy, & mass transport within homogeneous and heterogeneous reaction systems as applied to chemical, biological and environmental processes. Will also introduce principles and significance of chemical & biochemical reaction kinetics, methods of evaluating kinetic parameters from reaction rate data, and to predict the performance of different types of biological & biochemical processes based on given kinetic equations for both homogeneous and heterogeneous reactions.
