Finite Elements Analysis course, Nov 9-13, Barcelona, Spain
Registration is open for the workshop "Introduction to Biomechanical Computer
Simulation: Finite Element Analysis Applied to Biosciences - 4th ed.", November
Instructors: Dr. Josep Fortuny (ICP and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya,
Spain) and Dr. Jordi Marcé-Nogué (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya and
PLACE: Facilities of the Centre de Restauració i Interpretació
Paleontologica, Els Hostalets de Pierola, Barcelona (Spain).
FEA is a non-invasive modelling technique, based on the principle of dividing a
system into a finite number of discrete elements where the equations are
applied. Although static and dynamic analysis can be solved using FEA, in this
course only static analysis will be covered. In this course, there will be an
introduction to the Finite Element in order to model biological structures and
understand how they worked. It will cover all the steps involved in FEA (for
static analysis) except the creation or reconstruction of the model, which will
be covered in the previous course "3D Model Generation in Biosciences". That is
how to define the material properties of biological structures, the use of a
consistent Mesh Generation Methods, the proper definition of biomechanical
boundary conditions and finally, how understand and analyse the results
obtained in a computational simulation.
This course is co-organized by Transmitting Science, the Institut Catalá de
Paleontologia M. Crusafont and the Centre de Restauració i Interpretació
Paleontologica. Places are limited and will be covered by strict registration
