Making Sense of Gait Ground Reaction Force Data
John Rogers, U.S. Military Academy
Students analyze a data set containing ground reaction forces from a human walking on an instrumented treadmill.
Conduction and Convection in a Fin of Uniform Cross Section
Yuxin Zhang, Washington State University-Tri Cities
Conduction and convection are two important modes of heat transfer. To understand the mechanisms of these two types of heat transfer processes, we study the temperature distribution in a fin of uniform cross ...
Physical Activity and Heart Rates
Jennifer Jordan, Virginia Commonwealth University
This problem is an assessment of several computational methods being pulled together to solve a complex problem for biomedical engineering students. Students need to use mock clinical data to compute whether study ...

Exploring hypothesis-driven research using Arduino boards and Matlab
Sara Wilson, University of Kansas Main Campus
In this activity, students explore hypothesis-driven research through the development of an experiment using Arduino Uno style microcontroller boards and Matlab. This project encourages students to develop a ...
Virtual Pendulum Experiments & Mechanical Oscillations
Jeremy Riousset, Florida Institute of Technology-Melbourne
The pendulum motion is one of the first encounters with the concept of a harmonic oscillator. This activity seeks to complement a traditional, rigorous, theoretical approach with a rigorous numerical model. It ...

Illustrating Theorems from Calculus
Michaela Kubacki, Middlebury College
In this activity, students use MATLAB to create and interact with illustrations of three theorems from Calculus: (1) Extreme Value Theorem, (2) Intermediate Value Theorem, and (3) Mean Value Theorem. The assignment ...
Static stability: mechanisms and prestress modes
Mettupalayam Sivaselvan, SUNY at Buffalo
Summary: The assignment is about detecting structural stability in a 3D truss by applying linear algebra concepts such as rank, column-space and null-space of a matrix. Outcomes: * Students should learn linear ...
