Contents of the short courses

METHODS IN BIOMIMETICS

The course covers biomimetic materials, structures, mechanisms and systems. Examples at all levels will be discussed and illustrated, together with techniques for analysis and discovery. There will be three lectures, each about 90 minutes, with ample time for discussion and questions. Suitable for students and staff at all levels with interests in biology, engineering, design and architecture.

 

STRUCTURAL BIOLOGICAL MATERIALS

The course covers a range of biological materials ranging from soft to stiff, including some novel techniques for mechanical testing, especially of small and complex samples.  There will be three lectures, each about 90 minutes, with ample time for discussion and questions. Suitable for students and staff at all levels at all levels with interests in biology, engineering, design and food science.
