About this item
The book discusses a systematic understanding of the engineering principles and techniques of cavitation in biomedicine based on its physics and mechanism. The study of cavitation in biomedicine is interdisciplinary, and covers areas of interest from physics, engineering to the biological and medical sciences. This book introduces the fundamentals of cavitation, describes cavitation characterization under free field conditions and presents cavitation enhanced thermal and mechanical effects and their applications. It is intended as a combination of reference book for graduate students, and a monograph for scientists and engineers who work with cavitation in biomedicine. It will help students gain a broad and solid foundation in the field. The aim is to create a bridge for the different disciplines involved, and to promote the integration of cross-curricular interests, thus encouraging innovations in the scientific research and engineering application.
