This unit will give students a comprehensive understanding of medical image based solid modelling, advanced finite element methods, constitutive material models, design analysis and optimisation algorithms, experimental validation and their use in biomedical engineering. The students are expected to expand their research and development skills in relevant topics, and gain skills and experience with finite element software for the solution to sophisticated problems associated with biomedical engineering and experimentation techniques for the validation of these problems. The unit will take a holistic approach to the learning outcomes: an overview of typical biomedical design problems, an overview of finite element analysis software, a detailed look at advanced finite element methods in biomedical applications, and a project-based learning approach to the development of a biomedical prosthesis. By the end of the unit, the students are expected to have familiarised themselves with design project management, analysis, optimisation, and validation for biomedical engineering problems.
Tutorials, Lectures; Research, Meetings, Project Work - own time
Through semester assessment (100%)
The primary teaching delivery method will be lectures. This unit of study builds on the assumed knowledge of engineering principles and junior and intermediate biology. The purpose of this unit of study is to prepare students for the challenges presented in taking innovative ideas and successfully converting them to valuable products.
