Forensic Biomedical Engineering Experimentation And Modeling
AbstractBiomedical Engineering Applies Engineering Principles To Biological Systems, Holistically Utilizing Knowledge In Engineering, Biology And Medicine. The Cross-Disciplinary Field Integrates Engineering (E.G. External Force Applied) With Biomedical Sciences (E.G. Tissue Tolerance) And Clinical Input From Health Care Providers (E.G. Medical Diagnosis). Written For Those Familiar With Forensics, This Introduces Biomedical Engineering By Explaining How Medicine And Engineering Are Integrated. Scientific Methodological Approaches For The Analysis Of Trauma Causation And The Specific Applications To Forensics Are Outlined. Common Interactions Or Relationships With Other Forensic And Medical Disciplines Illustrate How Biomedical Engineering Uniquely Contributes To Forensics. The Section On Design And Proper Use Of Experimentation Outlines Applications Of Standardized Automotive Crash Tests. In Situations Where The Scale Of The Analysis Does Not Allow For Customized Full Scale Testing And When The Use Of Crash Test Databases Is Not Appropriate, The Proper Design Of Engineering Subsystem Experimentation Is Introduced. Lastly, An Alternative Method For Force Quantification In Trauma Causation Analysis, Computerized Mathematical Modeling, Is Illustrated.
