Abstract:
The small intestine is the foremost site of nutrient absorption in the body. Although many attempts have been made at modelhng absorption through the small intestine, few account explicitly for its small-scale geometry. In this thesis we consider a model of the small intestine as a wavy-walled channel, where the wavelength and amplitude of the waves are comparable to each other but are small in relation to the channel width.
