Aims/Description: This module introduces the human body from an engineering perspective; looking at it as a structure, a mechanism and a sensor. It then introduces both natural and replacement biomaterials discussing properties in relation to function using Ashby charts. Finally, the module discusses lessons that can be learnt from biomaterials by materials engineers in general (biomimetics).
Restrictions on availability: Cannot be taken with MAT1410.
