Biofluid Mechanics: An Introduction to Fluid Mechanics, Macrocirculation, and Microcirculation shows how fluid mechanics principles can be applied not only to blood circulation, but also to air flow through the lungs, joint lubrication, intraocular fluid movement, renal transport among other specialty circulations. This new second edition increases the breadth and depth of the original by expanding chapters to cover additional biofluid mechanics principles, disease criteria, and medical management of disease, with supporting discussions of the relevance and importance of current research. Calculations related both to the disease and the material covered in the chapter are also now provided.

- Uses language and math that is appropriate and conducive for undergraduate learning, containing many worked examples and end-of-chapter problems- Develops all engineering concepts and equations within a biological context- Covers topics in the traditional biofluids curriculum, and addresses other systems in the body that can be described by biofluid mechanics principles- Discusses clinical applications throughout the book, providing practical applications for the concepts discussed- NEW: Additional worked examples with a stronger connection to relevant disease conditions and experimental techniques- NEW: Improved pedagogy, with more end-of-chapter problems, images, tables, and headings, to better facilitate learning and comprehension of the material

Rubenstein, David
Dr. Rubenstein focuses on two major research areas: vascular tissue engineering and the initiation/progression of cardiovascular diseases mediated through platelet and endothelial cell interactions.
Yin, Wei
Dr. Yin conducts research into coronary artery disease, specifically how altered blood flow and stress distribution affect platelet and endothelial cell behavior and lead to cardiovascular disease initiation.
Frame, Mary D.
The focus of Dr. Frame's research is in integrating signal transduction events with physical properties of blood flow at the microvascular level, with the long term research goal of understanding the two phase question of how solute distribution and transport are coupled in the microcirculation.
