Introduction to Biosolids Mechanics --- This course covers the fundamentals on continuum mechanics and constitutive modeling relevant for biological tissues. Constitutive models covered include linear elasticity, nonlinear elasticity, viscoelasticity and poroelasticity. Structure-function relationships which link tissue morphology and physiology to tissue constitutive models will be covered for skeletal, cardiovascular, pulmonary, abdominal, skin, eye, and nervous tissues. Add Consent: Department Consent Required. Enforced Pre-Requisite: BIOMEDE 231 and (MATH 215 or 285) and (MATH 216 or 286); (C- or better).
