Practical Applications of Models of Oxygen Supply, Diffusion, and Consumption
It is the objective of this paper to describe, what models of oxygen supply, diffusion, and consumption have been and can be used for and to discuss some common problems in employing mathematical models of O2 transport. In a first part, four typical fields for model applications are selected from the wide variety of former investigations and are illustrated with some recent examples.
