This module is designed to enable students to apply the fundamental principles of engineering to bioengineering applications. It aims to provide the foundation for subjects in biomechanics and biofluids. Topics covered include Newton's Laws for forces and moments, free body diagram analyses, transfer of linear and angular momentum possessed by mass and contributed by forces, rigid body and fluid statics to perform simple analysis on human systems. Students will attempt steady and unsteady state problems, and understand the concept of mechanical energy, Bernoulli equations and Reynolds Numbers.
In addition to the above fundamentals,a students will be introduced to:
Laboratory experiments and computation simulations will be conducted to highlight the above engineering principles and applications.
On completing this subject the student will/should have the ability to:
