Bioengineering is a broad–based engineering discipline that applies engineering principles and design to challenges in human health and medicine, dealing with bio–molecular and molecular processes, product design, sustainability and analysis of biological systems. Applications that benefit from bioengineering include medical devices, diagnostic equipment and biocompatible materials, amongst others.

Computer Modeling in Bioengineering offers a comprehensive reference for a large number of bioengineering topics, presenting important computer modeling problems and solutions for research and medical practice. Starting with basic theory and fundamentals, the book progresses to more advanced methods and applications, allowing the reader to become familiar with different topics to the desired extent. It includes unique and original topics alongside classical computational modeling methods, and each application is structured to explain the physiological background, phenomena that are to be modeled, the computational methods used in the model, and solutions of typical cases. The accompanying software contains over 80 examples, enabling the reader to study a topic using the READ MORE >
