MIE439H1: Cellular and Tissue Biomechanics


Introduction to the application of the principles of mechanical engineering - principally solid mechanics and rheology - to living systems. Topics include cellular mechanics and hard and soft tissue mechanics, with consideration of both experimental approaches and analytical modelling. Applications of these topics to biomimetic and biomechanical design are emphasized through a major, integrative group project.
