The course provides the student with understanding of the dynamics of physiological fluid flows. The focus will be on the mechanical aspects of such flows.
AIMS AND CONTENT
The course provides the fundamentals for understanding the dynamics of biological motions, with particular reference to the motion of fluids in the human body. The following topics will be covered: blood motion in the cardiovascular system (motion in the heart, arteries, capillaries, veins), fluid dynamics of the ureter and eye.
Basic notions of mathematics and mechanics.
Combination of traditional lectures and classroom work on a project.
Introduction to biofluid dynamics.
Fluid mechanics of the hearth
Flow in large arteries
Flow in the microcirculation.
Ocular fluid mechanics.
LEcture notes of the course.

The students will be asked to work on a project that will be described in detail during class hours. In order to take the exam the students will have to work out the projects and write a short report for each of them. The exam will consist in an oral discussion of the projects and of the contents of the course.
