Dr. Richard T. Hart - Chairman of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Tulane University, New Orleans, LA
An interesting example of COMSOL Multiphysics been put to use in the classroom comes from Dr. Richard T. Hart, Chairman of the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
At the basic level, he teaches a freshman-year introductory course called "Elements of Biomedical Engineering Design," whose purpose is to introduce students to all the varied aspects of engineering that enter into biomedical-engineering projects. As part of the course, he gives assignments that require the students to create models in COMSOL Multiphysics.
In addition, graduate students and post-doctoral researchers working under Dr. Hart use the software to find new knowledge about how bones react to physical stress and other stimuli.
