DBL Tissue damage: simulate, visualize and analyze

Course

Description

Sports injuries are common among athletes. Most frequent injuries are ruptures of the muscle and tendons or ligaments. When and how do these tissues get damaged and how will this damage be represented within the structure and organization of the tissue? In this course, students learn to get more insights in the load bearing capacities and structure-damage relation of muscle and tendon tissue by means of theory, model, and experiments.
