PHYS 7617

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2014-2015.

Covers the fundamentals of fluid dynamics that rises in biological fluid dynamics such as the motion of the microscope cells in low Reynolds number flows and unsteady aerodynamics of flapping flight and free falling objects. The topics in fluid dynamics include Stokes flow, propulsion of a beating flagellum and swimming sheets, potential flow, unsteady airfoil theory, reduced model of unsteady forces on a fluttering and tumbling object, and computational methods. The current research in biofluids is discussed in some depth.

When Offered Spring.
