  • Multidisciplinary approach starting from the description of accumulated knowledge on the biology of the cardiovascular system to the numerical simulation of flows in the vasculature, incorporating rheology and mechanical data
  • Applications of modeling and simulations on health problems as well as therapeutic strategies
  • State-of-the-art in applied mathematics to physiological flows
  • Biological and mechanical glossaries for easy reading

Biology and Mechanics of Blood Flows presents the basic knowledge and state-of-the-art techniques necessary to carry out investigations of the cardiovascular system using modeling and simulation. Part II of this two-volume sequence, Mechanics and Medical Aspects, refers to the extraction of input data at the macroscopic scale for modeling the cardiovascular system, and complements Part I, which focuses on nanoscopic and microscopic components and processes. This volume contains chapters on anatomy, physiology, continuum mechanics, as well as pathological changes in the vasculature walls including the heart and their treatments. Methods of numerical simulations are given and illustrated in particular by application to wall diseases. This authoritative book will appeal to any biologist, chemist, physicist, or applied mathematician interested in the functioning of the cardiovascular system.
