"Basic Transport Phenomena in Biomedical Engineering, Second Edition" fuses fundamental engineering and life science principles to uncover key concepts in biomedical engineering transport phenomena. Coverage begins with basic thermodynamic properties, body fluids, solute diffusion and transport, physical and flow properties of fluids and blood, tissue oxygen transport, and pharmacokinetics. These topics are updated to include new material on fluid mechanics, diffusion, and mass transfer in boundary layers. Building upon this foundation, the book describes the application of these principles to the development and design of drug delivery systems, artificial organs, bioartificial organs, and tissue engineering. Also new to this edition are an introductory chapter on units and dimensions, including tips for solving engineering problems and a discussion of material balances, and a chapter reviewing thermodynamic concepts with emphasis on solutions.Considerable importance is placed on developing a quantitative understanding of the underlying physical, chemical, and biological phenomena.Mathematical models are developed from scratch using the conceptually simple 'shell balance' or 'compartmental' approaches to obtain the differential equations that describe a particular situation.

Numerous examples throughout the book employ mathematical techniques and numerical methods. Where possible, the results obtained from them are compared with actual experimental data taken from the research literature.Each chapter ends with problems designed to help students gain confidence in the development of mathematical models for a variety of problems of varying degrees of complexity. A brief discussion of these mathematical techniques and numerical methods are described in the book. These techniques and methods include similarity transforms, Laplace transforms, finding the root of a nonlinear equation, linear regression, nonlinear regression, and solving ordinary differential equations.This updated edition is ideal for junior and senior undergraduates and first-year graduate students taking courses in biotransport phenomena. Students and professionals in bioengineering and biomedical engineering, as well as other disciplines, such as chemical and mechanical engineering, physiology, biophysics and cell biology will find this text a valuable resource. A solutions manual will be available to qualified instructors.
