    • ( Exchange Programme )
    • Heat and mass transport in biological systems is an important and fundamental phenomenon in life and essential for biomedical applications. The Course will introduce principles and applications of bioheat transfer. Topics include Energy conservation and metabolisms, three modes of heat transfer, Convection over body surface, sweating, respiration, Heat transfer to blood vessels, anatomy and description of human vasculature system, bioheat equations, temperature measurement technique, and applications of bioheat equations such as hyperthermia treatment of tumor, cryobiology.
    • Course Syllabus:
    • After completing the course, students should:
      1. Have the Knowledge of heat transfer basic physics, energy conservation, bioheat transfer characteristics and the importance of vasculature
