Definitions of terms "Embiomechanics" and "Biomaterials”
Life and 2nd thermodynamic principle. Cells and out-cell structural materials. Resistance of biological materials and viscoelastic models. Rheology of blood. Exchange of gases (breathing). Bioprosthetic cardiac valves, in the mechanic behavior of bones, in the rheology bloodcells, in blood-compatibility of biomaterials, Phenomena that appear when living and not-living come in contact. Mechanics of muscles and bones. Biopolymers. Biomaterials (polymer, metals, ceramic, complex materials). Interactions of cells of/biomolecules with biomaterials. Techniques for the measurement of forces of detachment of cells from biomaterials, their limits and their importance. The interaction of parameters that is considered important for the characterization of the surfaces between biomaterials and membrane of cells. Planning of experiments and models of simulation in the level of microstructure and nanostructure. Bloodcompatibility, Biocompatibility, and Tissue-technology.
