BMEDME 4758 Biosolid Mechanics Credit 303 Prerequisites BMED 3400 or COE 3001 Catalog Description The mechanics of living tissue eg arteries skin heart muscle ligament tendon cartilage and bone Constitutive equations and some simple mechanical models Mechanics of cells Applications Required Text Introduction to Continuum Mechanics JN Reddy Cambridge University Press New York 2008 Objectives The overall objective of this course is to provide students with the mathematical preliminaries and theoretical framework to analyze the mechanics of biological materials Much of the course will consider modeling biological tissues as nonlinear elastic homogeneous anisotropic incompressible materials Additional consideration will be given to viscoelasticity heterogeneities and linearized elasticity and quasilinear viscoelasticity Outcomes At the end of the course the students should be able to 1 Perform basic tensor algebra operations and employ index notation to manipulate expressions containing scalar vector and secondorder tensors Program Outcomes l and 2 N Understand the concepts and various de nitions of stress and strain and identify the 3D state of stress and strain under different loading scenarios including uniaxial and biaxial extension and compression simple and pure shear and in ation and extension of a residually stressed tube Program Outcomes l and 2 E Delineate the general mechanical characteristics of different biological materials and identify an appropriate theoretical framework to perform stress analysis on these materials Program Outcomes l and 2 4 Apply the basic postulates of classical physics conservation of mass linear and angular momentum and energy and the entropy inequality to determine the 3D distribution of stress and strain in biological tissues under various loading scenarios with a given constitutive equation Program Outcomes l and 2 V39 Apply the basic postulates of classical physics to formulate constitutive equations and determine material parameters for biological tissues modeled as nonlinear elastic heterogeneous anisotropic incompressible materials Program Outcomes l and 2 Last modified October 24 2008
