Focuses on the use of animal models for the generalization of clinical results to become directly applicable to the human system. Significance of dimensional analysis in physiology in minimizing the number of animal experiments required and permit the application of results to other cases by simple calculations; Involvement of mathematical technique for finding those combinations or groupings of variables in the analysis; Application of engineering modeling techniques to physiologic problems.
