Biological and Bioenvironmental Heat and Mass Transfer by Ashim K. Datta

By Ashim K. Datta

Providing a beginning in warmth and mass delivery, this e-book covers engineering ideas of warmth and mass move. the writer discusses organic content material, context, and parameter regimes and provides functional functions for organic and biomedical engineering, commercial nutrients processing, environmental keep an eye on, and waste administration. The publication includes end-of-chapter difficulties and sections highlighting key options and critical terminology It bargains cross-references for simple entry to comparable components and suitable formulation, in addition to particular examples of delivery phenomena, and outlines of actual tactics. It covers mechanisms of diffusion, capillarity, convection, and dispersion.

Medical Device Design: Innovation from concept to market

This publication presents the bridge among engineering layout and clinical gadget improvement. there isn't any unmarried textual content that addresses the plethora of layout matters a scientific units clothier meets whilst constructing new items or enhancing older ones. It addresses clinical units' regulatory (FDA and european) requirements--some of the main stringent engineering requisites globally.

Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine in Ophthalmology

With an more and more elderly inhabitants, eye ailments have gotten extra frequent. Biomaterials have contributed lately to various clinical units for the recovery of eyesight, bettering many sufferers' caliber of existence. accordingly, biomaterials and regenerative drugs have gotten more and more vital to the advances of ophthalmology and optometry.

Religion and the Implications of Radical Life Extension

What for those who discovered you may stay a fit existence lasting for 1000 years or longer? Advances in biomedical know-how bring up the theoretical threat that individuals may perhaps dramatically lengthen or maybe indefinitely expand “healthy” human lifestyles. If this technology of “radical lifestyles extension” is learned and the expertise turns into generally on hand, it'll arguably have a extra radical influence on humanity than the other improvement in heritage.

Engineering Properties of Foods. , New York. 7. 8 shows the temperature profile in a cooking pot at some point in time during cooking. Consider the food as solid (no bulk movement or convection). 45 W/m · K, calculate the heat flux graphically as a function of height and plot on the same figure. (b) Show the direction of positive heat flux in the plot. (c) Since the heat flux is lower toward the top, less energy is flowing at an upper location than below.

Although many simple organisms and a few higher forms can remain viable after exposure to absolute zero, most plants and animals do not carry on biological activity below 0◦ C.
