16.423J Aerospace Biomedical and Life Support Engineering


Class Info

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.

This class has 16.400, 16.06, and 16.060 as prerequisites.

16.423J will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by D. J. Newman.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.

In the Spring 2013 Subject Evaluations, 16.423J was rated 5.7 out of 7.0. You can find more information at the DSpace@MIT: 16.423J Space Biomedical Engineering & Life Support, Fall 2002 site.
