Recent advances in Nano Technology has brought us closer than ever to using nano-robotics within the human body. This can have a variety of medical uses like transporting and releasing drugs in certain regions of the body. One way to do this, is distributing nano-bots in the blood circulatory system. It is therefore necessary to have accurate models to be able to simulate and test these possibilities. There are many ways to create simulations and models of the real world. One possibility is creating a model using electric circuits. In this thesis, that possibility, creating a model of the human circulatory system with electric circuits is explored. We can consider the circulatory system to be a complex system of tubes with bifurcations and intersections with fluid flowing through. Based on previous research in fluid dynamics, it is possible to model these specifications with electric components. Current available models often only simulate arteries and not the veins and capillaries. On top of that, many models group blood vessels together instead of representing the individual blood vessels. In this project an electric model of the human circulatory system was designed for the main blood vessels of the legs. Starting from current available models the goal was to improve the current research by adding in more blood vessels. Ultimately, the updated model showed an improvement for the circuit of the legs.
