Course Aims
Bone mechanics is a graduate level course that will allow the student to gain an in-depth knowledge of bone as a living mechanical system. Students will study the microstructure, mechanical properties, and the adaptation of bone to the mechanical environment. This class is appropriate for all graduate students who have an interest in bone mechanics.
Course Goals
 
Learning Outcomes of The Course Unit
Upon successful completion of this course, students will

1. Gain an appreciation for the intricate design of the human bone,
2. Understand relationships between structure and function in bone as a tissue and organ,
3. Identify the factors affecting the mechanical properties of bone tissue,
4. select an appropriate experimental method to determine the properties of cancellous or cortical bone.
Course Contents
Introduction to Bone mechanics, The skeletal system, Basic concepts in Solid mechanics and their applications in Bone mechanics, The ultra-, micro- and macro-structural examination of bone, Introduction to composite materials and the composite material models developed for bone, Mechanical properties of bone, Mechanical adaptation of bone under applied stresses, Modeling and remodeling theories of bone, Mechanical test methods for bone, Application of fracture mechanics to bone, Bone prostheses and implants, Application of finite element analysis for bone

Work Placements
As with any other educational component, credits for work placements are only awarded when the learning outcomes have been achieved and assessed. If a work placement is part of organised mobility (such as Farabi and Erasmus), the Learning Agreement for the placement should indicate the number of credits to be awarded if the expected learning outcomes are achieved.
