ENGR 13100 Ideas to Innovations Part II Fall 2010 Homework No. 5 Assigned: Class 4b SUMMARY OF READING AND UPCOMING DELIVERABLES DUE HC E Reading/Reference Materials: Excel Workbooks (CH 11) 5b Statistics (CH13) 5b Homework Problems [130 Points]: Problem 1 (20 pts): School of Biomedical Engineering 5b c - Problem 2 (20 pts): School of Materials Engineering 5b c - Problem 3 (30 pts): Hybrid-Diesel vs. CNG Transit Buses (Memo) 5b c c Problem 4 (20 pts): Descriptive Statistics 5b c - Problem 5 (20 pts): Histogram I 5b c - Problem 6 (20 pts): Histogram II 5b c - Project/MEA: Practice MEA 5a c - HC = Hard copy E = Electronic submission PROBLEM 1 (20 pts) (This problem is to be completed individually ) Question and Answer Session Preparation – Biomedical Engineering (BME) Overview - Design of a prosthetic limb that attaches directly to bone. According to the National Limb Loss Information Center, there has been an increase in the number of lower limb amputations in the past decade. In order to provide these individuals a prosthestic limb which will always fit, will always be securely locked into position, and will not introduce chafing and discomfort, you, as a biomedical engineer are challenged with developing a prosthesis that integrates directly to bone for transfemoral amputees. The device should allow the user to have a full range of motion, and allow them to complete normal activities such as walking, driving, and running. Special attention will need to be addressed to the implant/device interface to ensure that there is no compromise in the patient's bony support structure and muscle integrity. Assignment: Step 1: Download the Homework #5 answer sheet from the Homework folder on Blackboard. Rename the file with your section number and username and save file to your H: drive. Step 2: In a one-page summary, describe, sketch and outline your solution to the design of a prosthetic limb that attaches directly to bone. Discuss material choices, possible issues related to the integration of synthetic (i.e. man-made) materials and natural tissues, structural design details of required limb-like structures to withstand a wide range of forces, and issues related to interfacing with potential electrical feedback systems. Deliverables for Problem 1: 1. Submit a hard copy of the Homework #5 answer sheet with a homework coversheet for Problems 1-6.
