ENGG*3170 Biomaterials W (3-2) [0.50]
Physical properties of natural and synthetic (e.g. stainless steel, polymers) materials used in biological engineering applications are presented in this course. Topics will include microstructure and mechanical properties of typical biomaterials, quantification of advanced material properties and behaviours, fabrication, compatibility, biodegradation and mechanical failure. Typical applications will include processing of biomaterials as well as equipment and implant design.
