Learning objectives
After passing the course, the student has insight in:
  1. Scalar, vectorial and tensor quantities in coordinate free- and in matrix notation after introduction of base and can solves questions from biomechanics.
  2. The basics of force and moment and can set up a free-body diagram and calculate with it.
  3. The concept of static equilibrium and can determine unknown forces and moments and forces in cross sections.
  4. The influence of force and moment on movement and can describe a movement as a result of force and momentum.
  5. Elastic and visco-elastic material behaviour of fibers and muscles in 1 dimension and can use this to solve a 1-D problem.
  6. The concepts stress- and strain tensors and can solve stress and strain questions in 3-D.
  7. Elastic material behavior in 3-D formulated in terms of the stress- and strain tensor and can use this to solve 3-D problems.
  8. The deformations as a result of bending and torsion in simple rods and can calculate the internal stresses and strains as a result of these deformations.

Short promotional description of the course
Het vak behandelt de basis van de continuumsmechanica. Na een inleiding over vectorrekening wordt er ingegaan op krachten- en momentenevenwicht, kinematica, spanningen en rekken. Daarnaast worden beginselen van tijdsafhankelijk materiaalgedrag behandeld. Het vak is de basis voor iedereen die geïnteresseerd is in ontwerp van prothesen en orthesen, medical devices, cardiovasculaire problemen, orthopedie, bewegingsleer.
Short promotional description of the course
The course comprises the basics of continuum mechanics. After an introduction on vectorcalculus, equilibrium of forces and moments, kinematics, stresses and strains will be introduced. In addition an introduction to time-dependent material behaviour will be given. The course is the basis for everyone interested in design of prostheses and ortheses, medical devices, cardiovascular problems, orthopaedics and movement science.
