Classical biomechanics rocks!

This January I have been teaching the theoretical background of classical biomechanics in the workshop “Introduction to Functional Morphology and Biomechanics” (4th Ed) in Catalonia (Premises of Sabadell of the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP)). My colleagues Dr. Richard Fariña, Dr. Pere Ibáñez-Gimeno and Dr. Soledad de Esteban-Trivingno are showing simple models based on the basic principles of…

Teaching FEA for paleobiologists

Last week was held a new edition of the course about Computer Biomechanics in life sciences using Finite Element Analysis. In last ten years Finite Element Analysis (FEA) become a commonly used method in biology and palaeontology which can be find in lots of recent research publications. As I know, the first paper where FEA…

New videos in my Youtube channel: Workshops of Plane Models

I’ve added a new video in my Youtube Channel from the course “Introduction to biomechanical computer simulation: Digital Modelling and Finite Element Analysis Applied to Biosciences” by Jordi Marcé-Nogué (University of Hamburg) and Josep Fortuny (Institut Català de Paleontologia – Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle) and organized by Transmitting Science: http://www.transmittingscience.org/courses/funct-morph/fea_en/ The video is a tutorial about a…

Workshop in Biomechanics and Functional Morphology in January

In January I will be teaching in the workshop “Introduction to Functional Morphology and Biomechanics” (4th Ed) in Catalonia (Premises of Sabadell of the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP)). It will be from Monday 11th to Friday 15th January 2016 and will be taught for Dr. Richard Fariña, Dr. Pere Ibáñez-Gimeno, Dr. Soledad de Esteban-Trivingno and myself. This workshop…

New Biomechanical Computer Simulation Course in november

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a great tool for biologists, palaeontologists, doctors, veterinarians, and other biosciences specialities in which researchers face questions about biomechanics of living and extinct organisms. Elements like bone, arthropod exoskeleton, mollusc shells, or the stems and leaves of plants can be analysed using this technique. FEA is a non-invasive modelling technique,…

Nuevo curso de simulación computacional i digitalización en paleobiologia

Un nuevo curso organizado por Transmitting Science se está realizando durante ese mes de marzo en la ciudad Argentina de La Plata sobre “Introducción al análisis funcional a través de la simulación computacional: Modelado digital y Análisis de Elementos Finitos aplicados a biociencias”. El curso se realiza en el edificio  CONICET – Centro Científico Tecnológico (CCT) La…
