ENGG 182 - Biomechanics and Biomaterials

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
This course is designed to introduce the students to the application of statics and dynamics to perform force analyses of the musculo-skeletal system. Introduction to the fundamentals of strength of materials and its application to deformable bodies. Biomechanics of soft and hard tissue and its application to organ systems. Linear viscoelastic models, incorporating a blend of both elastic and viscous characteristics, are analyzed. The course also provides a comprehensive background in biomaterials. Topics include mechanical, chemical and thermal properties of replacement materials and tissues. Implants are studied from the point of view of biological response of tissues and evaluation of biomaterials. (3 hours lecture.)
