Introduction to Biomechanical Engineering
Hard and Soft Tissues
Describe the structure, function, mechanical properties, and active remodeling of hard and soft tissues.
Describe muscle structure, muscle force sharing, passive and active muscle response.
Skeletal Dynamics and Joint Reaction Forces
Compute skeletal dynamics and joint reaction forces during human locomotion.
Finite Deformation Analysis
Apply finite deformation analysis to compute soft tissue strains based on marker motion.
Utilize mechanical engineering principles to evaluate the mechanics of physiologic systems in the human body.
Develop an approach for resolving ethical dilemmas related to biomedical engineering.
