Analysis on biomechanical systems
Introduction to bionics, structure of the human musculoskeletal system, stress distributions in bony and connective tissue structures, osteosynthesis and implants used, joints, joint hydraulics, biomechanics of cartilage, ligaments, tendons and muscles, FE in biomechanics, FESA: finite element structure analysis, skull analyses.
FE exercises integrated and guided in the lecture such as: virtual 3D analysis of a natural and an artificial hip joint, healing requirements for an endoprosthesis stem, guiding mechanism of an intramedullary nail.
Synthesis on biomechanical systems
Experimental methods for biomechanics
The tension chord principle and low bending bone loading, Wolff transformation law of bone: Atrophy, hypertrophy and necrosis, temporary and permanent implants, biocompatible and bioactive implant materials, dental root implants, hip endoprostheses, knee endoprostheses, shoulder endoprostheses, FESS: finite element structure synthesis, virtual cranial syntheses. Functional evolutionary pressure.
FE exercises integrated and guided in the lecture, such as: virtual synthesis of a flexure-free structure under eccentric loading, virtual synthesis of a posterior cruciate ligament.
