Properties

  • Semester hours: 2.0
  • Credits: 2.0
  • Type: UE Exercise
  • Format: Distance Learning

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to employ (nonlinear) continuum mechanics approaches to solve problems in the field of biomechanics. Specifically, students will be able to describe the mechanics of protein unfolding, bone (anisotropic elasticity) as well as ligaments and tendons (non-linear elasticity)

Subject of course

  • Exercises with models of protein unfolding, bone (anisotropic elasticity) as well as ligaments and tendons (non-linear elasticity). The exercises is directly linked to the Tissue Biomechanics lectures (317.026).
  • The exercises will be given in advance
  • All exercises are mantadory to solve

Teaching methods

Calssical lecture

Solving of example worked examples at the blackboard

Mode of examination

Immanent

Additional information

The exercises are given on a weekly basis and after the lecture on Tissue Biomechanics. In english.

Examination modalities

The examintation modality is immanent. The students will be given one week in advance to prepare and solve a set of exercises. At the deadline, the students are required to have submitted their handouts as electronic form on TUWEL and their solutions will be marked. For a positive mark solutions from all sets of exercises must be submitted.
