Learning objectives
After passing the course, the student has insight in:
  1. Written communication and can apply this when writing a self-study and a report.
  2. Collaboration with other students and can apply this when together creating a joint groups product.
  3. Reflection on own work and the work of others in the form of peer review and processing intermediate feedback on a draft product.
  4. Making time schedules when planning to work towards a predefined deadline.
  5. Verbal presentations and applies this during meetings and group work.
  6. Ways of searching for and dealing with scientific information by means of individually looking up information and using this information for the final product.

After passing the course, the student is able to:
  1. Apply and integrate the acquired knowledge on load bearing capacity and structure damage relation of biological tissue, by means of theory, model (MATLAB) and experiments to address the problem statement.
  2. Show insight in the ethical aspects of working with biological and animal material by describing and discussing these aspects.
Content
In this course, students will investigate the effect of tissue damage on the load bearing capacities of muscle and tendon tissue, and couple this to the composition, structure and function of the tissue. A research plan and hypothesis will be designed based on theory, and will be investigated using a mathematical model and experiments. Tissue damage will be simulated in tendon and muscle tissue using experimental laboratory work with bovine tissue and tensile tests. A mathematical model (MATLAB) will be applied to simulate the mechanical behavior of tendon and muscle tissue. Furthermore, more insight on the structure of both healthy and damaged muscle and tissue will be obtained during a microscopy practicum. Halfway the course, the research plan, hypothesis and results up to then will presented. The course is concluded with a scientific report.

Short promotional description of the course
Veel sporters hebben te kampen met een sportblessure. Veel voorkomende blessures zijn een pees- en spierscheuring. Maar wanneer en hoe raakt een weefsel beschadigd en hoe representeert deze schade zich in de organisatie van een dergelijk weefsel? In deze casus leren studenten door middel van theorie, model en experiment inzicht te krijgen in de belastbaarheid en structuur-schade relatie van pees- en spierweefsel.
Short promotional description of the course
Sports injuries are common among athletes. Most frequent injuries are ruptures of the muscle and tendons or ligaments. When and how do these tissues get damaged and how will this damage be represented within the structure and organization of the tissue? In this course, students learn to get more insights in the load bearing capacities and structure-damage relation of muscle and tendon tissue by means of theory, model, and experiments.
