Dynamics of blood flow through body was investigated by French physicist and physician J.L.M Poiseuille in 1799. As the blood vessels are not rigid and fluid flowing through them is non-newtonian the Poiseuille’s law does not apply as such to flow of blood through vascular system. This chapter highlights principles of flow dynamics in human body. Differences... [More]
