Assignments and examination

Compulsory assignments

Assignment 1: Research topic

Reading about a current research topic of your choice. 

Students gather in groups of 2-4 people and choose a research topic. You need to find at least 5 research articles about the topic and thoroughly read them. The topic is then presented orally during 15 + 5 min in front of the rest of the class, and a written summary is handed in per group (3 pages).

20% of grade

Choose topic/group 19/11.  Hand in plan: 26/11.  Due: Oral 4/12 or 6/12.  Due: Written 6/12

 

Laboratory 1, bone:                                      Due: 3/12

Practical experimental and numerical exercises related to bone mechanics.

Three-point bending test of a rat femur will be conducted in the biomechanics laboratory, followed by a practical finite element exercise where you should mimic your experimental test.

One report is completed, where you combine both exercises, including reflection and conclusions, as well as discussion of necessary assumption regarding experimental testing and the numerical modelling.

Also includes calculation problems related to bone mechanics and elasticity. Written solutions should be brought to the experimental lab for discussion.

 

Handed in individually.

Laboratory 2, soft tissues:                            Due: 15/1 - 2019

Practical experimental and numerical exercises related to tendon mechanics.

Tensile test of a rat tail tendon will be conducted in the biomechanics laboratory, followed by a practical finite element exercise where you should mimic your experimental test.

One report is completed, where you combine both exercises, including reflection and conclusions, as well as discussion of necessary assumption regarding experimental testing and the numerical modelling.

Also includes calculation problems related to soft tissues, e.g. viscoelastic models. Written solutions should be brought to the experimental lab for discussion.

Handed in individually.
