  • EG-225 Structural Mechanics IIb

    This module continues from EG-221 and introduces some advanced topics in Structural Analysis - matrix stiffness methods for trusses and frames, moment distribution method for continuous beams and basic theory on influence lines for both statically determinate and indeterminate structures. Furthermore, experimental testing of various structures and familiarization with the use of MATLAB for structural analysis will also be carried out.

  • EGA100 Numerical Methods for Biomedical Engineers

    The course provides a practical foundation for the use of numerical methods to solve biomedical engineering problems. It will review MATLAB programming techniques and apply these techniques to a range of biomedical engineering problems. By the end of the course students should 1) feel comfortable in a programming environment 2) be able to translate numerical formulations into a program, 3) solve biomedical engineering problems computationally.

  • EGA206 Aerospace Structural Mechanics and Materials

    Building on Strength of Materials and Structural Mechanics 2(a), this module introduces the students to the stiffness method for structural analysis, followed by lectures covering stress concentration, fatigue, cracking and creeping of materials and how to design for these in the aerospace and automotive industry.
