This module develops the differential description of the equations that describe the dynamics of fluids. The module introduces topics of direct industrial relevance, such as the flow in pipeflow, shear stress, and turbulence. In addition, the module initiates the student to the use of 'off the shelf' modelling solutions that will later be used in further modules. Blood flows to all our cells as to deliver oxygen and nutrients. As such an understanding is important in many diseases. Fluid flow and blood flow follow the laws of motion and can be described by partial differential equations. These equations can be solved analytically under simplified conditions. For more realistic conditions, numerical approximations need to be derived. In many physiologically relevant situations, it is necessary to account for the blood¿s complex rheology. This field has developed dramatically and several clinical applications will be discussed.
