Maximum Credits: 3
Bioengineering 2045 computational case studies in Biomedical Engineering this is an interdisciplinary course that will combine: basic sciences such as electromagnetics and thermodynamics applied sciences such as numerical methods and simulations biomedical research and applications such as magnetic resonance imaging, hypothermia, heat transfer in biological bodies, and cardiac action potential, and mathematical concepts such as optimizations, linear and nonlinear equations. This course will be based on solving computational biomedical engineering problems using simulations. Some of the numerical topics will include: numerical solutions of matrices, finite element and finite-difference methods. These topics will be described with emphasis on their use in solving these problems. The course will cover setting up the mathematical description of the models and solving these problems using advanced computer codes and the supercomputer center at Pittsburgh. There will be 1d, 2d, and 3d modeling projects.
