Bioengineering Fundamentals - 07 edition

Bioengineering Fundamentals (ISBN10: 0130938386; ISBN13: 9780130938381)
ISBN13: 978-0130938381
ISBN10: 0130938386

Summary: For sophomore-level courses in bioengineering, biomedical engineering, and related fields.

Combining engineering principles with technical rigor and a problem-solving focus, this textbook takes a unifying, interdisciplinary approach to the conservation laws that form the foundation of bioengineering: mass, energy, charge, and momentum.

Features
  • Fundamental concepts and equations that uni
    fy all engineering curricula--Demonstrates how conservation laws (including conservation of mass and energy, momentum, and charge) apply to biological and medical systems to lay a foundation for beginning bioengineers.
  • Focus on practical skill development--Designed to assist students in acquiring skills useful in the field, such as: problem formulation and solving; understanding of mass, momentum, charge, and energy conservation equations; the application of conservation equations to problems in the biological and medical sciences, and an appreciation for the field's technical challenges and opportunities.
  • Mastery of conservation principles--Delivers essential knowledge as students transition from general science and math courses to upper-level bioengineering courses, such as biomaterials and bioinstrumentation.
  • Framework of accounting and conservation principles (Ch. 2)--Allows students to build a mental model of how key concepts in engineering, chemistry, and physics are interrelated. Emphasizes how accounting and conservation equations are used to derive familiar laws, such as Kirchhoff's current and voltage laws, Newton's laws of motions, Bernoulli's equation, and others.
  • Emphasis on problem-solving strategies--Usesextensive example problems that are worked out in detail to demonstrate the translation of written problem statements into a diagram.
  • Wide array of examples using actual numerical parameters--Topics span the breadth of modern bioengineering, including physiology, biochemistry, tissue engineering, biotechnology, and instrumentation, giving students exposure to current bioengineering technology and research.
  • Quantitative engineering approach and exposure to bioengineering technologies and research topics (Ch. 1)--Introduces physical variables in the context of bioengineering, and the methodology for solving engineering problems that is used throughout the text.
  • Conservation of mass, energy, charge, and momentum (Chs. 3-6)--Opens each chapter with a timely bioengineering research or design challenge to expose students to the realities of the field.
  • Detailed biomedical applications (Ch. 7)--Features three case studies on heart and blood circulation, lungs and a heart-lung bypass machine, and kidneys and dialysis, that are designed to bridge the applications of the mass, energy, charge, and momentum accounting and conservation equations in biomedical systems. Appropriate for use as either core or supplementary material, or as the basis for large-scale problem-based projects.
  • Self-contained chapters and flexible organization--Simplifies the process of customizing material to fit unique class demands. Instructors can choose to emphasize one or more extensive properties, or to teach from an entirely problem-based learning framework.
