Unformatted text preview: . Design a technique to non-invasively measure the velocity in a blood vessel. Consider a blood vessel close to the surface of the skin (e.g. on the back of your hand). There are different levels of details that can be measured: the average velocity and the velocity profile. Consider both possibilities. Describe in detail the method of approach, a calibration of the measurement, and the limitations of the approach. How would you determine the smallest size of blood vessel in which you can measure the velocity? Note: There is a need to significantly improve and also simplify the techniques to measure the velocity in human blood vessels, so that the measurement becomes more accessible especially to patients with high risk for cardiovascular complications. - Our Plans: Next week we will speak about strain rates and constitutive equations. * To be turned in for grading...
