About the Project

This projects builds on another recent project to model human hand interactions with packaging. The use of finite element techniques will be used to further develop a human hand model with key features to show how loading, dimensions and grip affect the forces the hand joints experience. This will lead to further studies into grip design and shape optimisation to create the most comfortable grip for a given scenario. This could be applied further into arthritic hand where the hand geometry has altered through the progression of the disease.

Funding Notes

1st or 2:1 degree in Engineering, Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry, Applied Mathematics, or other Relevant Discipline.

Some experience of using finite element analysis may be useful in order to progress quickly with the study
