BMEN4355 - Finite Element Analysis in Biomedical Engineering

BMEN 4355 Finite Element Analysis in Biomedical Engineering (3 semester credit hours) The course will provide an introduction to the finite element method with an emphasis on applications in biomedical engineering. Traditionally rooted in structural engineering, finite element methods are used in simulating the mechanical response of the human body and medical devices. Theories will be reinforced through practical applications primarily using commercial simulation software. The course will also briefly cover methods of creating computational models from medical image sets. Prerequisites: (BMEN 3399 and ENGR 2300) or (senior status and permission of instructor). (3-0) Y
