Biology 427 Biomechanics 2007 Lecture 13. Finite elements, joints and skeletons •Recap FEM and stress distributions. •Finite Element Analyses in Evolution • Motion is permitted at joints with several degrees of freedom and low EI •Mechanical advantage and speed ratio (those moment (or torque) balances) •Rhinogrades: an enigmatic taxon Project proposals: due Friday, February 6 Proposals should be no more than 3 double-spaced pages, and should address the following: ! What is your question? ! Why is your question important/interesting? ! What is known about your question? (give background from literature*/web searches) ! How will you develop a quantitative analysis of your problem? (you do not need to provide any equations in the proposal, but should explain the quantitative approach/steps you will take) ! *Read “Advice for preparing projects” on the webpage! Shell Function: Protection Why Whorl? Explore the early transitional forms
