BEE 4530 - Computer-Aided Engineering: Applications to Biological Processes

(crosslisted) MAE 4530  
Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: heat and mass transfer (BEE 3500  or equivalent). Satisfies BE capstone design requirement. Satisfies College of Engineering technical writing requirement. Students must also enroll in ENGRC 4530 .

A. K. Datta.

Introduction to simulation-based design as an alternative to prototype-based design; analysis and optimization of complex real-life processes for design and research, using industry-standard physics-based computational software. Emphasis is on problem formulation, starting from a real process and developing its computer model. Covers biomedical processes in thermal therapy and drug delivery that involve heat transfer, mass transfer, and fluid flow. Computational topics introduce the finite-element method, pre- and post-processing, and pitfalls of using computational software. Students choose their own semester-long biomedical project, which is the major part of the course (no final exam).
