ME-484

Lecturer(s) :

Terrier Alexandre

Language:

English

Summary

Students understand and apply numerical methods (FEM) to answer a research question in biomechanics. They know how to develop, verify and validate multi-physics and multi-scale numerical models. They can analyse and comment results in an oral presentation and a written report.
