Modeling & Simulation: Course Outline (CS-332)

Modeling and simulation (M&S) refers to using models – physical, mathematical, or otherwise logical representation of a system, entity, phenomenon, or process

Course Objective

The vital organs are complex entities that are regulated by many factors including chemical, biological, and mechanical, etc. To have a better understanding of the interactions between these factors and resulting phenomena, a thorough analysis is necessary of all possible data that can be collected. The main focus will be on human vital organs, mechanical behavior of subsystem, and simulation in Biomedicine and the affecting factors.

Course Outline

  • Introduction, Basics of modeling and simulation, Examples and investigations of simulations in real system,
  • Concept of modeling in Biomedical Engineering and realization of models in simulation systems. Definition of terminologies used in modeling and simulation, Discuss queuing theory (examples, why queues form and waiting lines), Describe components of a basic queuing process,
  • Configuration of the service system, Digital simulation and mathematical modeling, Time-oriented and event-driven processes,
  • A brief overview of the variety of mathematical models, Model of cardiorespiratory system (model requirements, conceptual model), Model of circulatory system (model requirements, conceptual and mathematical model), Model of respiratory system (model requirements, multiple/conceptual/ mathematical models), Physiological control modeling (model requirements/conceptual/ mathematical models), Applications of modeling of liver, heart and lungs.
