Course Syllabus Introduction to Biomechanical Systems Fall 2009 Welcome to Introduction to Biomechanical Systems, an elective in the MEM biomechanics concentration. The course is designed to provide an overview of biological applications of mechanical engineering. We will introduce you to varied fields of biomechanical engineering, hopefully piquing your interest in particular area (or areas) and inspiring you to pursue further coursework or research in that area. With your help, this course will be a great learning experience by exposing you to a breadth of interesting material and hopefully challenging you to think about nontraditional applications of mechanical engineering. Course overview: An overview of the application of mechanical engineering to biological systems. Covers basic anatomy and physiology; tissue, joint, cell, and protein mechanics; joint kinematics; biofluid mechanics; biothermodynamics; biotransport; biomimetic controls; and biomanufacturing. Catalog description Credits: 3.00 Prerequisites: MATH 200, PHYS 101, CHEM 102, BIO 141 Name Instructors: Office Phone Email Office Hrs Dr. Alisa Clyne AEL 170C 215-895-2366 Lecture: Tuesday and Thursday 11:00 AM – 12:20 PM (Curtis 162) Class Sessions: The class format will vary among presentation of new material, demonstration, lab, case study, research paper discussion, or guest lecture by an expert in the topic of the day.
