Biomaterials ENGG*3170

Physical properties of natural and synthetic (e.g. stainless steel, polymers) materials used in biological engineering applications. Topics will include microstructure and mechanical properties of typical biomaterials, quantification of advanced material properties and behaviours, fabrication, compatibility, biodegredation and mechanical failure. Typical applications will include processing of biomaterials as well as equipment and implant design.
