Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
This laboratory is part of BME 205 - Biomedical Mechanics and complements it with relevant labs and examples. Statics and dynamics subjects will be studied with experimental techniques, including strain gauges and accelerometers, and computational methods, including finite-element analysis and motion capture. Finally, the human arm will be studied to derive forces, moments, and kinematic properties during various exercises. BME student only.

Biomedical Engineering program is going through a curriculum change. One of the major changes is to add labs to sophomore level required courses and make them 4-credit hour courses. This course action is representing the lab component of BME 205 in a stand alone course format for students who will take Statics and Dynamics instead of BME 205 Biomedical Mechanics and add this lab to satisfy the BME 205 requirement.

The goal of this course is to teach students how to design and conduct experiments and analyze and interpret data  with mechanical systems.


Student Learning Outcomes

1. Design an experiment that minimizes experimental and systematic errors, and use error propagation to

calculate uncertainties of the final results.

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

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

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

5. Compare the results of calculations, simulations, and experimental measurements of mechanical properties

in identical systems.

6. Design structures with 3D printing

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

8. Model human body with anthropomorphic properties from data tables

9. Differentiate between human appendages differ from simple linkages using a human arm model
