FEA is a non-invasive modelling technique, based= on the principle of
dividing a system into a finite number of discrete ele= ments where
the equations are applied. Although static and dynamic analysis= can
be solved using FEA, in this course only static analysis will be
cover= ed. In this course, there will be an introduction to the Finite
Element in = order to model biological structures and understand how
they worked. It wil= l cover all the steps involved in FEA (for static
analysis) except the crea= tion or reconstruction of the model, which
will be covered in the previous = course "3D Model Generation in
Biosciences". That is how to define = the material properties of
biological structures, the use of a consistent M= esh Generation
Methods, the proper definition of biomechanical boundary con= ditions
and finally, how understand and analyse the results obtained in a c=
This course is co-organized by Transmit= ting Science and the Institut
Catalá de Paleontologia M. Crusafont. Pl= aces are limited and will be
covered by strict registration order.
