Teaching & Undergraduate Education
AME 3112: Solid Mechanics Laboratory
The general objective of this course is to provide an exposure to the measurement methods commonly used to monitor structural systems and components. The laboratory component of the course provides the student with hands-on experience with a variety of measurement instrumentation.
Major topics introduced in this course are statistical analysis of experimental data; computer data acquisition and data processing; measurement of displacement, velocity and acceleration; measurement of force, strain, and stress; measurement of basic materials properties using a tensile test; development and improvement of basic technical report writing; development of oral communication and presentation skills; and development of interpersonal skills by working on a team.
AME 3143: Solid Mechanics
In this class we introduce the basic concept and theory that govern the stress and strain appearing in the loaded structures. The main objective of the course is to provide students with basic knowledge and skill in analyzing stress and strain (or displacement) in structures commonly found in mechanical and civil engineering applications. This is the class that offers students the fundamental knowledge in analysis and design of mechanical systems with essential structural integrity.
AME 3723: Numerical Methods for Engineering Computation
This course uses specific software applications tailored toward aerospace and mechanical engineering. Basic methods for obtaining numerical solutions with a digital computer. Included are methods for the solutions of algebraic and transcendental equations, simultaneous linear equations, ordinary and partial differential equations, and curve fitting techniques. The methods are compared with respect to computational efficiency and accuracy.
AME 5213/4213, BME 5213: Biomechanics I
This class aims to introudce physiological systems with emphasis on structure and function of tissues and organs, applications of continuum mechanics and engineering principles to understanding of tissue and organ behavior at microscopic and macroscopic levels, and computational approaches for modeling viscoelastic and solid biomaterials.
