What could be created to capture small representations of Brown culture and society now to revisit in the future?
Rajat Mittal Professor of Mechanical Engineering Whiting School of Engineering The Johns Hopkins University Baltimore, MD Multiphysics Modeling of Cardiac Flows: from Heart Murmurs to Ventricular Thrombogenesis The heart is first and foremost a flow pump and the design of a healthy heart ensures the smooth and efficient passage of blood through the cardiac chambers. Thus, fluid dynamics figures prominently in almost all analyses of cardiac biomechanics.
