Finite Element Modeling for Biomedical Applications

This course will deal with the implementation of finite element and related
methods, drawing examples from Biomedical Engineering. Therefore the course will also cover method
of incorporating freeform biological shapes in computational models such as shape importation and image
segmentation. The course will cover the basics of Finite Element methods, such as shape functions and
sparse matrix methods, giving students enough background to allow them to intelligently operate complex
commercial software or to construct their own models. Students will also be exposed to methods such as
finite difference, boundary element and time domain modeling, adaptive meshing and other large scale
modeling techniques. A substantial portion of the course will involve students developing and solving
their own models.
