Course Description: This course presents an introduction to the principles of heat, mass and momentum transfer and their application to solve problems in living systems.

Prerequisites: Mathematics through differential equations, freshman biology sequence, first year of physics, thermodynamics (physical chemistry).

Course Objectives:
At the end of this course the students should be able to do the following: • Describe the fundamental conservation principles and constitutive laws that govern heat, mass and momentum transport processes. • Develop the fundamental engineering skills that enable effective expertise for addressing novel biomedical applications including the design of systems that interface with or analyze living systems. • Develop the fundamental engineering skills to enable the modeling or analysis of transport processes in living organisms.

Required Textbooks:
1. Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer, 6th Edition, by Incropera, DeWitt, Bergman and Lavine. 2. Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics, any Edition, by Munson, Young and Okiishi.

Other Useful Textbooks:
Biotransport: Principles and Applications, 1st Edition, Robert Roselli and Ken Diller. Transport Phenomena, 2nd Edition, Bird, Stewart and Lightfoot. ABET Program Outcomes Achieved:
1. Apply knowledge of biological and physical sciences, mathematics, and engineering to solve problems at the interface of engineering and biology. 2.Identify, formulate and solve biomedical engineering problems that...
