Courses

CU Boulder

MCEN 4228/5228 – Mechanics of Cancer

This course will cover the role of mechanics (emphasis on solid and fluid mechanics) in cancer and cancer-related processes. Course content includes experimental systems used to model and test these processes.

MCEN 2023 – Statics and Structures

Covers statics of particles, equivalent force systems, rigid bodies, equilibrium of rigid bodies in two and three dimensions, analysis of truss and frame structures, uniaxially-loaded members, distributed force systems and friction.

UMass Amherst

MIE 597/697T – Orthopaedic Biomechanics

Application of mechanics and materials principles to orthopaedic tissues. Physiology of bone, cartilage, ligament, and tendon and the relationship of these properties to their mechanical function. Mechanical behavior of skeletal tissues. Functional adaptation of these tissues to their mechanical environment. Tissue engineering of replacement structures.

MIE 402 – ME Lab II

Theory and execution of selected mechanical engineering measurements. Lectures and 1 three-hour lab meeting. 

MIE 397B – System Dynamics

Modeling, analysis, and simulation of dynamic systems. Models for the dynamics of systems from different disciplines derived using differential equations and then transformed into state-space and input/output forms, and finally simulated. Relevant concepts from Laplace Transform, linear algebra, and complex variables covered. The models analyzed for transient response and frequency response properties.
