|Subject Overview:||This subject examines the mechanics of animal and human tissues. Various modes of tissue injury will be outlined, from the cellular level to gross injury mechanics such as head injury and neck injury. Cell, tissue and whole body injury mechanics will be taught using a variety of case studies, ranging from situations leading to muscle strain and tears to impact mechanics in murder, car crashes and injuries in the workplace. The course will focus on examining the mechanics and statistical approaches that can cope with large uncertainties. Engineering mechanics and numerical analysis will be compared with empirical methods. |
|Objectives:||On completing this course students should be able to: |
