BMET2960 is designed to equip you with the necessary tools to mathematically model and solve a range of canonical problems in engineering: conduction heat transfer, vibration, stress and deflection analysis, convection and stability. You will learn how to compute analytical and numerical solutions to these problems, and then apply this to relevant and interesting biomedical examples. By the end of this unit you will know how to derive analytical solutions via separation of variables, Fourier series and Fourier transforms and Laplace transforms. You will also know how to solve the same problems numerically using finite difference, finite element and finite volume approaches. The theoretical component of the unit is complemented by tutorials where you will learn how to use Matlab to implement and visualise your solutions. There is a strong emphasis in both the lectures and tutorials on example-based learning - you will see and attempt many different examples involving a wide range of biomedical applications. Applications include electrical, mechanical, thermal and chemical mechanisms in the human body and specific examples include heat regulation, vibrations of biological systems, and analysis of physiological signals such as ECG and EEG. This is a challenging but rewarding unit to equip students with useful tools for an engineering career.
