This class will introduce fundamental concepts of statics and solid mechanics and apply them to study the mechanical behavior bones, blood vessels, and connective tissues such as tendon and skin. Topics to be covered include the structure and mechanical properties of tissues, such as bone, tendon, cartilage and cell cytoskeleton; concepts of small and large deformation; stress; constitutive relationships that relate the two, including elasticity, anisotropy, and viscoelasticity; and experimental methods for measuring mechanical properties.
