This course will explore the human body, modeled as a mechanical system, and fundamental mechanical engineering principles that can be applied to answer questions about its structure and function. In this course, students will be introduced to tools, methods and models used in the biomechanics field. Topics covered will include deformable solid mechanics of the bone and soft tissues, fluid mechanics, statics and dynamics in musculoskeletal biomechanics applications, experimental biomechanics models, computational biomechanics models, and biomechanical sensors and signals. Students will be asked to survey and critique biomechanics research literature, solve simple biomechanics problems, and identify classical biomechanics fields and emerging biomechanics frontiers.Prerequisites:A background in physics or mechanical engineering as well as experience working in MATLAB is encouraged.
