16.423[J] Aerospace Biomedical and Life Support Engineering
Fundamentals of human performance, physiology, and life support impacting engineering design and aerospace systems. Topics include effects of gravity on the muscle, skeletal, cardiovascular, and neurovestibular systems; human/pilot modeling and human/machine design; flight experiment design; and life support engineering for extravehicular activity (EVA). Case studies of current research are presented. Assignments include a design project, quantitative homework sets, and quizzes emphasizing engineering and systems aspects.
16.423[J] will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by D. J. Newman.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
