This course covers topics ranging from multi-body systems to stress superposition to failure criteria to prepare students for the more advanced subjects of biomechanics and rehabilitation engineering. Topics include the following: Free-body diagrams, Multibody statics and dynamics, Linkage kinematics and kinetics, Anthropometric kinematics, Stress/strain/torsion, Beam bending, Stress superposition, Constitutive relationship, Strain gauges, Finite-element analysis, Failure analysis, Failure mechanisms.

Biomedical Engineering program is going through a major curriculum change and creating a unified undergraduate curriculum between NCSU and UNC-CH. BME 345 is one of the eight gateway electives which prepare the students for the specialization electives in five areas of faculty interest. Biomedical Solid Mechanics course requires a solid background in mechanics (statics and kinetics) and materials science. Once these fundamentals are firmly understood in the context of non-biological objects, they can be applied to the more complicated biological systems.

BME department had 8 recent hires to cover the these courses.

The goal of this course is to teach fundamentals of biomedical solid mechanics such that they can be applied to the more advanced biological systems in regenerative medicine and rehabilitation engineering.


Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Deconstruct biomechanical systems into basic linkage systems and calculate the forces and moments.

  2. Apply linear elastic material laws to calculate deformation in deformable bodies.

  3. Calculate the stresses and strains in components and determine the location and likelihood of failure using failure analysis.

  4. Model stresses and forces in components using finite-element analysis both by hand and with software.

  5. Apply safety factors where variable loads are expected in for biomechanical and non-biomechanical applications.

  6. Design and 3D-print a hip implant that can withstand the largest load possible using the results of strain gauges, finite-element simulation, and literature review.
