Bio-continuum Mechanics (3) Mechanical properties of fluids and solids with applications to tissue mechanics and vascular system.
BIOE 303 Bio-continuum Mechanics (3)
The course serves as an introduction for students of science and engineering who are beginning a series of courses in mechanics. Students should have had some courses in calculus, physics, strength of materials, vector analysis, and elementary differential equations. A course in continuum mechanics then provides a foundation for studies in fluid and solid mechanics, material sciences, and other branches of science and engineering.
T'his course is required for the BS in Bioengineering, and is available as an elective in the Bioengineering Undergraduate Minor. It will provide an introduction to concepts of solid and fluid mechanics, analysis in the context of mechanical properties of biological tissues, physiological models and measurement systems.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
