Fluid dynamic concepts for understanding fluid motion in living organs/organisms; advanced research applications.
This course can be applied toward:
MECH 342 (Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Flow Processes) or PH 141 (Physics-Sci&Eng I) or BMS 420 (Cardiopulmonary Physiology) or CIVE 300 (Fluid Mechanics) and BMS 300 (Principles of Human Physiology) or PH 121 (General Physics I).
Dr. Bark’s research is focused on cardiovascular fluid dynamics and biomechanics, with an aim of understanding how cells produce and respond to forces in a flow environment in relation to cardiovascular disease. His research is also focused on developing diagnostics, prostheses, and therapeutics to benefit human health by integrating experimental and computational engineering techniques with biological approaches.
