Last call for Biomechanics and Finite Element Analysis courses

Dear Colleagues:

This is the last call for early registration with reduced fee (until October 
31) for the following courses:

- “Introduction to biomechanics and finite elements analysis – Second edition”, 
January 14-18, 2013: http://www.transmittingscience.org/biomechanics_and_fea.htm

- “Finite Elements Analysis advanced: 2D and 3D case study”, January 21-25, 
2013: http://www.transmittingscience.org/fea_advanced.htm

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a non-invasive modeling technique, which is 
very useful for biologists, paleontologists, doctors, veterinarians, and other 
biosciences specialties in which researchers face questions about biomechanics 
and structure behavior under different loads. Elements like bone, arthropod 
exoskeleton, mollusk shells, or the stems and leaves of plants can be analyzed 
using this technique. These workshops intend to foster in the attendants the 
ability to use the interdisciplinary approach of biomechanics, and will be 
focused in how to build and analyze 2D and 3D finite element models of skeletal 
elements. It will cover all the steps involved in FEA starting from a Medical 
Image Reconstruction of the model, to how to define the material properties of 
bone, the use of a consistent Mesh Generation Method and finally, how 
understand the results obtained in a computational

These courses will be held in the Sabadell facilities of the Institut Català de 
Paleontologia (Barcelona, Spain) and are co-organized by Transmitting Science 
and the Institut Catalá de Paleontologia M. Crusafont. Place are limited and 
will be covered by strict registration order. Attendance to both workshops has 
a discount.
Please feel free to distribute this information between your colleagues if you 
consider it appropriate.

With best regards
