Abstract

Please stop by the following lab anytime between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to learn more about what they have to offer!

Bio-mechanical systems research for a new track in Mechanical Engineering, as well as for faculty researchers and their student teams, is supported by the Multi-Disciplinary Bioengineering Laboratory (MDBL).

The space contains a variety of hardware and tools necessary to maintain bench-top experiments and student projects, as well as a comprehensive library of bioengineering literature. High-end graphical workstations capable of rendering 3D solid models and stacked medical images, such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, are available in this space.

Floating licenses to critical domain-specific software, including state-of-the-art medical segmentation software (ITK-Snap and Blender), STAR-CCM+ [a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software that serves to resolve hemodynamics problems], and ABAQUS (a solid mechanics software that serves to resolve deformable vessel wall as well as bone, muscle, and joint interaction problems), which interfaces with STAR-CCM+ for flow-structure interaction (FSI) problems.

Additional specialized hardware equipment in this space includes:

  • Harvard oscillating pump for experiments that simulate pulsating cardiovascular flow,
  • MakerBot Replicator (3D printer) for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing
  • Biopac Biomedical Engineering Teaching System
  • Google Glass
  • Data acquisition systems
