Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
Yes
SIS Program CodeProgram TitleRequired or Elective?
BSBME014Biomedical EngineeringRequired
Study of the state of rest or motion of bodies subjected to the action of forces. Properties of force systems, free body diagrams, concepts of equilibrium, kinematics of particles, newton's laws, conservational principles of energy of momentum in mechanics, mechanical vibrations and their applications in biomedical systems. Restricted to student in the Biomedical Engineering Department.

BME program is working on a unified UG program curriculum between NCSU and UNC CH. NCSU students were taking Statics and Dynamics separately from Civil or Mechanical Engineering departments; UNC students were taking only Statics. In order to harmonize, we decided to resurrect the CE 213 Mechanics course and supplement it with a lab on biomedical applications.

College(s)Contact NameStatement Summary
College of EngineeringJack Edwards, MAECourse syllabus was shared to check if it satisfies the pre-req requirements of MAE 308 Fluid Mechanics. MAE approved.
College of EngineeringRudi Seracino, CENew curriculum 8-semester display was shared to show the place of CE 382 Hydraulics as an approved engineering elective. CE approved.
BME department will pay the Assistant Dean David Parish to teach this course.

Students will draw Free-Body and Kinetic diagrams, list simplifying assumptions, formulate and solve appropriate equations and interpret the results to explain their physical significance.


Student Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, students should be able to:



  • Identify forces, moments and their positions acting on and within rigid bodies and structural components in equilibrium.

  • Formulate engineering problems both graphically and mathematically, including through the use of free body diagrams, equations of equilibrium, shear & moment diagrams.

  • Solve a wide range of rigid body equilibrium problems involving multiple types of structural components.

  • Design an experiment that minimizes experimental and systematic errors, and use error propagation to calculate uncertainties of the final results.

  • Calculate internal forces and moments in rigid two-dimensional structures.

  • Measure static and kinematic properties directly with experimental techniques, such as strain gauges and accelerometers.

  • Simulate loads and moments in different structures with finite-element analysis.

  • Compare the results of calculations, simulations, and experimental measurements of mechanicsl properties in identical systems.

  • Design structures with 3D printing.

  • Use motion capture to extract kinematic properties and energy from moving bodies.

  • Model human body with anthropometric properties from data tables.

  • Differentiate human appendages from simple linkages using a human arm model
