Nano and Bio Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow (Paperback) (Majid Ghassemi & Azadeh Shahidian)
About this item
Nano and Bio Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow focuses on the use of nanoparticles for bio application and bio-fluidics from an engineering perspective. It introduces the mechanisms underlying thermal and fluid interaction of nanoparticles with biological systems. This book will help you translate the theory into real world applications such as drug delivery and lab-on-a-chip. The content covers how transport at the nano-scale differs from the macro-scale, and also what complications arise in a biologic system at the nano-scale.
It is ideal for students and early career researchers, engineers conducting experimental work on relevant applications or those who develop computer models to investigate/design these systems. Content coverage includes biofluid mechanics, transport phenomena, micro/nano fluid flows and heat transfer.
- Discusses nanoparticle applications in drug delivery
- Covers the engineering fundamentals of bio heat transfer and fluid flow
- Explains how to simulate, analyze and evaluate the transportation of heat and mass problems in bio-systems
