Finite Elements Analysis course, Nov 9-13, Barcelona, Spain

Dear colleagues, 
Registration is open for the workshop "Introduction to Biomechanical Computer 
Simulation: Finite Element Analysis Applied to Biosciences - 4th ed.", November 
9-13, 2015.

 Instructors: Dr. Josep Fortuny (ICP and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 
Spain) and Dr. Jordi Marcé-Nogué (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya and 
ICP), Spain).
 PLACE:  Facilities of the Centre de Restauració i Interpretació 
Paleontologica, Els Hostalets de Pierola,  Barcelona (Spain). 
 WEBPAGE: http://www.transmittingscience.org/courses/funct-morph/fea/
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 
Please feel free to distribute this information between your colleagues if you 
consider it appropriate.
