Fall. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: BME 3410 , or BME 3210 , or permission of instructor. Course serves as the BMMB Concentration Practicum Laboratory. BMDD students may also use this course to serve as their practicum lab. This course satisfies the Technical Writing requirement for BME majors.

L. Bonassar.

This course focuses on mastering experimental techniques related to measuring the mechanical behavior of biomedical materials and biological tissues. Students will learn techniques for measuring mechanical properties of cardiovascular and musculosketletal tissues in tension, compression, shear, and bending. Students will learn to apply non-linear models to describe the behavior of elastic, viscoelastic, poroelastic, and hyperelastic materials.
