Modelling in Biomechanics

This is the page gathering all the necessary information for the Modelling in Biomechanics course (FME2401). The course is being taught on the spring semester, and is part of the Biophysics and Medical Physics Masters program of the Physics Department of UBB

Lectures

In the 2020-2021 academic year, all lectures of the course will be held on-line through the Teams platform. If you would like to join, please contact me so that I can add you on the group.

Laboratories

In the 2020-2021 academic year, all lectures of the course will be held on-line through the Teams platform. If you would like to join, please contact me so that I can add you on the group. For the practical sessions we will mainly work with two pieces of software, for implementing various types of biomechanics models that are discussed in the course. If you wish to participate in the laboratory sessions, then please follow the instructions on how to install the following software:

  • FEBio: Finite Element Analysis software, with a strong focus on biological materials and processes
  • OpenSim: Multi-body analysis software, specifically designed for musculoskeletal systems

They are both OpenSource and Free to download, although you need to register for an account in order to download OpenSim
