Bio

Dr. Cristian A. Linte completed his BASc in Mechanical and Materials Engineering at the University of Windsor in Windsor, Ontario, Canada in 2004, followed by his MESc and Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada in 2006 and 2010, respectively. In 2011, Dr. Linte joined the Biomedical Imaging Resource at Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN – a group with a long standing tradition in the development of medical image analysis and image-guided intervention technology – for a post-doctoral fellowship, which transitioned into an research-track academic appointment as Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering in 2012.

This course exposes students to the fundamentals of static and flowing fluids at both large-scale (control volumes) and local differential scales. Student learn how to examine forces on solids due to static and flowing fluids, estimate head losses and pumping requirements in piping systems. The art of engineering approximation is examined through estimates of forces due to flow on solids, as well as limiting cases involving internal pipe flows with friction factors. Exact solutions of local differential equations of fluid mechanics are considered under both steady state and transient conditions, and these analyses are used to determine forces in control volume analysis of bodies. The important interplay between differential and control volume analyses in solving problems is emphasized. Lastly, students are taught to make analogies about the concepts learned in generic fluid mechanics and apply them to the circulatory system, while outlining appropriate limitations.

SOIS-340
3 Credits
3D-technologies offer exciting potential to address the needs of individuals with amputations across the globe. Developing solutions to complex real-world problems requires the cooperative expertise of several disciplines. Students will get hands-on experience with 3D-printers, scanners and software, and discover strategies for applying their academic skills within an interdisciplinary environment. Person-centered design, medical device policy, mechanical properties of materials and life cycle analyses will be examined. Physiological challenges of fitting devices that interface with the body and the benefits and dangers of open-source designs will be explored. Critical thinking will be applied to determine what makes a prosthetic “better” or “worse” within complex environmental and cultural contexts. Psychological ramifications of limb loss and the meaning of wearing a prosthetic will be considered. At what point does it cease to be a device and begin to become a part of the individual?
