EGH435 Modelling and Simulation for Medical Engineers

This advanced unit develops your knowledge and skills in analysing biomechanical components and systems in the course of medical device development. The unit focuses on modelling and simulation techniques using industry standard software. It applies content introduced in EGH418 Biomechanics, builds upon the finite element capabilities introduced in EGH414 Stress Analysis and adds quantitative analysis tools to the medical device design process commenced in EGB319 BioDesign.Traditional analytical and experimental techniques can often not be applied to investigate the mechanics of devices in biological systems. Biomechanical systems exhibit substantial non-linearity due to complex geometries, materials and interactions. Medical engineers are required to use modelling and simulation techniques in the design of biomechanical components and/or systems. This unit introduces the principles of modelling and simulation techniques and their applications in Biomedical Engineering.
