Bio-fluid Mechanics National Taiwan University
This course is to give an overview of circulatory biomechanics from the standpoints of engineering, physiology, and medical sciences. Experimental results from advanced clinical researches are used as examples and served as the guide to new focused research areas with great clinical values.
