This is the official webpage for the lab component associated with ME482: Experimental Tissue Mechanics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. This annual fall course focuses on microstructure-property relationships of tissue in the musculoskeletal system including bone, tendon, ligament, cartilage, and muscle.
The goal is to understand how the tissue structure and composition relate to mechanical properties of healthy and diseased tissue. Emphasis is placed on experimental tissue mechanics. To this end, there are four hands-on labs focusing on cutting-edge biomechanics techniques that students must participate in for successful completion of this course.
