报告题目：基于工程设计及医疗保健的数字化人体建模与仿真 Digital Human Modeling and Simulation forEngineering Design and Biomechanics
报 告 人：Prof. Jingzhou (James) Yang
Digital human modeling and simulation plays an important role in product design, prototyping, manufacturing, sports biomechanics, and other areas. It reduces the number of design iterations and increases the safety and design quality of products. In this talk, I will first briefly review the state of art of digital human models, then I will summarize research projects carried out in my research lab. The first area is to investigate the optimization-based digital human predictive models to assist design and engineering. The second area is healthcare engineering and spine biomechanics.
