Empirical Modeling for Oxygen Transport Processes and Related Physiological and Bioprocess Systems

Engineering analysis is based upon quantification of systems via mathematical modeling and computer simulation. The most fundamental approach is to begin with the basic principles of physics, chemistry and biology and formulate phenomenological models that are based upon mass, energy and momentum balances. This procedure evolves equations with specific system parameters such as, diffusivity, velocity, rate constants, etc., that can be examined to determine system sensitivity to various inputs. The theoretical modeling approach has many advantages because it yields a primary understanding of system behavior at the process parameter level.
