BMED 6280 - Biomechanics of Soft Tissues

Application of continuum mechanics in modeling the biomechanical behavior of nonmineralized tissues such as tendons, ligaments, skin, cartilage, blood vessels, etc. Topics include structure of collagen, elastin, proteoglycans, and other tissue components, nonlinear elastic models (including Fung’s pseudoelasticity approach and strain energy functions), linear viscoelasticity, Fung’s quasilinear viscoelasticity, hereditary integral formulation of constitutive equations, and introduction to mixture theory.

When Offered: Fall term odd-numbered years.

Credit Hours: 3
