Respect the Environment: Designing New, Bioabsorable Medical Implants and New Green Energy Storage Devices (1) Environment is: the surroundings or conditions in which a person, animal, or plant lives or operates. Our task as modern engineers is to make it clean, free of debris and highly effective in providing and maintaining productive lives of human beings. This FYS will discuss recent technological advancements focused on limiting amount of 'waste left behind' in two very different fields: the human body and nature. We will be analyzing a new field of bioabsorable, non-toxic biomedical implants and development of environmentally respectful energy storage devices. Both new bioimplants and new energy sources are expected to disappear at the end of their designed life. We will learn (in the lab) how to evaluate bioimplants to modern engineering and its spectrum of interconnected fields and show how an engineering problem and its solution have important implicatios in meeting socitetal needs.
