Prerequisites: Engr. Mech. - M.E. E3105 and Engr. Mech. E3113. This course introduces applications of continuum mechanics to the understanding of various biological tissue properties. The structure, function, and mechanical properties of various tissues in biological systems, such as blood vessels, muscle, skin, brain tissue, bone, tendon, cartilage, ligaments, etc., will be examined. The focus will be on the establishment of basic governing mechanical principles and constitutive relations for each tissue. Experimental determination of various tissue properties will be introduced and demonstrated. The important medical and clinical implications of tissue mechanical behavior will be emphasized.
