Biomechanical Modelling of Bone and Cartilage

2 + 1 ECTS


 1) To give insight into articular cartilage and bone biomechanics, structure and composition, and present imaging and mechanical testing techniques to characterize these properties.
 2) To present basic principles of biomechanical modeling of tissues, especially articular cartilage and bone, and show state-of-the-art techniques and computational models of articular cartilage and bone.
