LO2 Apply classical mechanics theories to biomechanical applications and calculate stresses and deformations
LO3 Analyse linear human motion using kinetics
LO4 Perform a range of Mechanics Laboratory Experiments as part of a team in a safe and appropriate manner, document results, research and apply relevant theories and report the results.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).

Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed
