Module overview

This module explores the application of fluid dynamics in biology, a rapidly growing area. Topics come from three major areas; internal physiological flow (in blood vessels, airways and the urinary system) with specific reference to the correlation between flow regimes and the development of arterial disease (heart attacks and strokes), swimming across a range of scales, and flying (insects and birds, from hover to gliding).
