Flexible connective tissue found in many areas of the body i.e
joints between bones, rib cage, ear, nose, bronchial tubes and
the intervertebral discs.
Not so hard as bone and less flexible than muscle
1) What are tendons?
2) What fluid is present in the joint and what is the
biological function of the fluid?
3) Explain structure and functions of skin with neat
4) Explain viscoelasticity and non linear stress and
Support and strength
Protein Elastic (tissue to
Ground substances (Tissue
Support to the cells
1) What are arteries and arterioles?
2) What are lung mechanical parameters? Explain
normal breathing mechanism using P-V curve
3) Explain the mechanism and functions of
cardiovascular system with neat diagram?
4) How is breathing air
Organ system that permits blood and lymph circulation
to transport nutrients to and from cells in the body
- Blood vessels
Includes: Pulmonary circulation, Systemic circulation
1) Significant features of non-Newtonian fluids?
2) How mucus play an important role in controlling
antigen present in the system?
3) What is meant by Pseudo-elasticity?
4) Short notes on i) Hookes law, ii) Newtonian and
Flow properties of blood
Refers to the movement and deformation of
blood and forces that produce that flow
Role of Blood:
- Transport medium
- Buffering reservoir to control the pH of bodily fluids
- Transports heat (centrally located tissues
Biofluids & Dynamics
Studies the way that fluids move in the
Obstructions in blood passageways
Smallest transport lines for blood/some
