|MODULES||This unit is a module of:|
The student should gain an understanding of the mechanical and anatomical principles that govern human motion and develop the ability to link the structure of the human body with its function from a mechanical perspective.
By the end of the course students are able to Identificare i principi meccanici fondamentali relativi al movimento umano, describe motion with precise, well-defined mechanical and biomechanical terminology, apply mechanical laws of applied physics to human movement, solve biomechanical problems using the laws of applied physics, and understand how musculoskeletal structures affect human movement.
Linear and angular kinematics:
reference planes and axis of rotation;
linear, rectilinear and curvilinear motion;
basic techniques for kinematic analysis;
equations of constant acceleration and projectile motion;
interpretation of kinematic data.
Rigid body kinematic
Degrees of freedom, Kinematic couples, Body joints
Linear and angular kinetics:
Newton’s laws of motion and gravitation;
centre of mass of a body;
type of forces
moment arms and levers;
Static, Application of static to the human body
Moment of inertia, Angular momentum, Rigid body dynamics
momentum and impulse;
work, energy and power, stability and balance;
interpretation of kinetic data.
Human movement in a fluid medium:
buoyancy, drag, lift and propulsion.
Upper and lower body musculoskeletal tissue mechanics:
stress, strain, modulus and viscoelasticity;
response of tissues to mechanical overload in injury and conditioning;
degradation of tissue mechanics.
Biomechanics exercises: shoulder, elbow, hip and knee.
Materials and readings will be distributed via the course website.
All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
Final exam will consist on a Written Test. Each question will have a score from 2 to 5. Incorrect and missing answers will have a score of 0. The written test grade will be obtained by summing the scores for each correct question for a maximum total of 35/30.
If a student has an insufficient grade >= 16 and <18 he/she shall benefit of a short oral exam to reach a sufficient grade.
Both the written test and the eventual oral exam will evaluate the capability to apply the logical and mathematical principles and the acquisition of the capacity of a critical analysis of the problems relative to biomechanical and human movement problems covered at the lectures.
The written test will contain multiple-choice questions on the course theoretical concepts and exercises to be numerically solved.
The oral exam will evaluate:
- Insightful understanding of course theoretical concepts;
- Use of proper terminology
- Competency to translate the theoretical concepts to practical settings.
