Biomechanics and Medical Instruments (BRI)

Master Study Programme

Study is centred on training of theoretically equipped specialists for the field of biomechanics of man (musculosketelal and cardiac artery systems) and on training designers of medical apparatuses, replacements of organs, rehabilitation aids and equipment for social pediatrics. Study is also centred on training specialists for the operation of apparatuses in medical institutions guaranteeing their technical and security parameters and performing measurement analysis.

Graduates are able to orientate themselves on a general level in medical problems, are able to communicate with doctors on problems of common interest, because they are acquainted with the function of diagnostic and therapeutic departments in hospitals.

Applied Mechanics for Bachelors (AMEB)

Bachelor Study Programme

Graduates gain extensive knowledge of mechanics of solids and deformable bodies and selected topics from mathematics and they also gain knowledge of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics. They master methods and means of experimental research of machines and structures. Students gain knowledge of application of standard computer software namely based on the final element method (FEM). The content of this study programme gives graduates broad flexibility in finding jobs, this being based on more extensive knowledge of fundamental subjects taught at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. Graduates are prepared to work on computer and experimental problems in all spheres of mechanical engineering both in production and research.

The knowledge gained by the graduates in their specific orientation enables them to continue in their study in branches of the Adjoining Master Study Programme: Engineering Mechanics and Mechatronics, Biomedical and Rehabilitation Engineering and Mathematical Modelling in Engineering.


Doctoral Study Programme

Biomechanics deals with the mechanical properties, functions and problems of the statics, kinetics, dynamics, biorheology, bioviscoelasticity, biotolerance and injuries to living systems and the replacement of their parts on the basis of general methods of continuum mechanics. Of concern is therefore an analysis and synthesis of the mechanical response of living systems to various internal and external impulses from the viewpoint of physiological and pathological phenomena of living organisms, innate and sustained defects and injuries etc. Biomechanics also contributes to the development of instrumentation, non-invasive diagnostics and therapeutic methods.

Namely the following topics are of concern : biomaterials and their biotolerance properties, constitutive equations of the ligament and cartilage including biotribology, bioviscoelasticity, stress and ultimate deformations tensor, soft and solid tissue, biomechanics of the bone tissue and its remodelling, mechanics of bone tissue injuries and fracture remedies, biomechanics of large human synovial joints and their replacements including pathological cases, hydrodynamic properties of synovial fluid, smooth and skeletal muscle mechanics, muscle fatigue, skeletal muscle systems mechanics, mobility control, human spinal column biomechanics. Further topics pertain to cardiomechanics (cardiac valve mechanics, passive and active myocardial properties) and vascular biomechanics (constitutive equations of artery walls, dynamic response of the artery and perivascular tissue), hemodynamics namely flow of blood in bifurcations and stenoses, mechanics and optimization of artificial arteries, bioprothetic valves. Biomechanics of the pericardium and coronary arteries. Biomechanics of erythrocytes, leucocytes, viscoelastic properties of the blood plasma. Flow properties of lymph. Dental mechanics and orthodontics, biomechanics of hearing. Biomechanics of injuries of the brain, spine, rib cage, pelvis. Problems related with biolocomotion, ergometry and biomechanics in rehabilitation. Included in biomechanics is tissue engineering which deals with investigation of functional relations of normal healthy and pathological structures of the human tissue in the development of biological replacements. These replacements serve for renewal, preservation or improvement of intelligent biometarials. Experimental biomechanics of soft and solid tissues.
