Promotional Information

This new edition 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.

About the Author

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. 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. 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.


"...a systematic teaching and learning tool for students, as well as an effective educational structure to aid in the learning of biofluid mechanics...Every chapter of this textbook concludes with a summary that reiterates the salient points and key equations." --Zentralblatt MATH
