Open when course_delivery = campus OR course_delivery = blended OR course_delivery = flip
Open when course_delivery = distance OR course_delivery = online OR course_delivery = remote
Prerequisite: BME 201; MAE 208 or CE 215; MAE 214 or CE 313; MA 341
Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
Experimental and analytic tools are developed and used to solve problems in biomedical engineering. Techniques include kinematic analysis, closed form and finite element analysis of stresses and strains in a body, and failure analysis. Transducersnecessary for experimental analysis and testing are introduced. Students learn advanced software packages such as the finite element program ANSYS and the dynamic analysis program ADAMS to assist in their analyses.

MAE changed the course number MAE314 to MAE214. BME would like to correct the pre-reqs so the students can register.

The book Engineering Analysis An Introduction to Professional Method by D. W. Ver

Planck and B. R. Teare (John Wiley & Sons, 1962) will be on reserve at the DH Hill library

and is a good though dated reference on how to approach an engineering problem.


Each Student will be required to have a USB Flash Drive to store computer files for lab

work.

Student Learning Outcomes

problems.


2. Develop a representation of a biological system in terms of equivalent mechanical


components


3. Design and analyze the motion and forces in basic linkage systems.


4. Design and analyze basic supporting frames and structures for mechanical systems.


5. Analyze the stresses and strains in a component and determine the likelihood of failure.


6. Develop and present an analysis of the components of a mechanical system.


7. Find and use standards to develop testing procedures and as aids in analyses.


8. Use peer-reviewed literature to determine necessary parameters for analyses


9. Experimentally measure force, displacements, and strains applied to and in a body.


10. Use current software packages to assist in performing an engineering analysis.
