Summary 


Term project:
Devise a physiological model
for the thesis work that you are doing.
Your model must satisfy the following criteria:
While the focus of this
course is on transport, heat conduction and fluid mechanics, the model you
devise can be related to any branch of engineering as appropriate to your
thesis. For example, you may find it
more appropriate to use a solid mechanical model or an electrical engineering
model for the project you are working on.
Writeup:
Submit a writeup (estimated 10 pages, in ARIEL 12 point type, single spaced). The format of the writeup will be that of a journal article (Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions). Refer to the “Format for a Journal Article” for more details.
