BME-420 Computational Biomechanics Spring, 2010, 3 credits Instructor: Prof. Yi-Xian Qin Class time: MW: 5:20-6:30PM Office hour: MW: 3:00-4:30PM Prerequisites BME 303 Biomechanics BIO 203 Cellular and Organ Physiology OR: permission by instructor Reference Book: Kwon and Bang: The Finite Element Method Using MATLAB, CRC press Skeletal Tissue Mechanics. Martin et al. Linear and Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis. Spyrakos and Raftoyiannis Biomechanical Models for Soft Tissue Simulation. Maurel et al. Course Goals Introduces the concepts of numerical modeling methods in biological tissue applications. Biomechanical topics and basic concepts related to numerical simulations of skeletal biology, bone, ligament and tendon will be covered in the class, particularly to emphasize the integration between engineering modeling approaches and biology. The principle of finite element analysis (FEA) will be taught in the course, through cases linked to solve biological and medical problems. The modeling approaches using linear elastic constitutive equations and properties for biological tissues will be introduced. FEA are applied to solve problems in both solid status and porous medium. This course will prepare students hands-on and practical skills using computational methods to solve challenge problems. Basic programming skills using MATLAB, or Fortran or C languages are required. Advanced finite element software packages will be introduced in the course. BME 420 Objectives
