MAE 4641 - Orthopaedic Tissue Mechanics

Spring. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: ENGRD 2020  and MAE 3270 . Prerequisite or corequisite: MAE 4300  or permission of instructor. Enrollment limited to: senior standing or permission of instructor. Fulfills Senior Design requirement. Co-meets with BME 4640 /MAE 4640 /MAE 5640 .

C. Hernandez.

Application of mechanics and materials principles to orthopaedic tissues. Physiology of bone, cartilage, ligament, and tendon and the relationship of these properties to their mechanical function. Mechanical behavior of skeletal tissues. Functional adaptation of these tissues to their mechanical environment. Tissue engineering of replacement structures. Senior Design report required.

Outcome 1: Students will know and understand the function and physiology of bone, cartilage, tendon and ligament as organs and tissues.

Outcome 2: Apply strength of materials concepts to the mechanical behavior of musculoskeletal tissues and organs.

Outcome 3: Understand the unique adaptive capacity of musculoskeletal tissues to their mechanical environment.

Outcome 4: Integrate and interpret biological data and mechanical engineering concepts.
