BME 4490 - Biomechanics Laboratory

Spring. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: BME 3410  or BME 3210  or permission of instructor. Enrollment preference given to: Biomedical Engineering majors. 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 Engineering Communications 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 musculoskeletal 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.
