3230. Biosolid Mechanics

3.00 credits

Prerequisites: CE 3110.

Grading Basis: Graded

Contemporary topics on applications of nonlinear solid mechanics to modeling of biological tissues and design of biomedical devices. Study of the theoretical aspects of nonlinear solid mechanics including kinematics, stretch, stress and hyperelastic material models along with review of current literature. Stress analysis of soft biological tissues, tissue functions and disorders, and interventional device design. The modern techniques pertinent to mechanical testing, computational modeling and simulation of soft biological tissue behaviors will also be discussed. Students are expected to review literature and actively participate in classroom discussion.
