Dr. Dan Romanyk is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, with and Adjunct appointment in the School of Dentistry, at the University of Alberta. He also completed his Phd and Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Alberta. Dr. Romanyk’s primary areas of research surround the mechanical characterization of natural and synthetic biomaterials in the craniofacial environment, and studying the biomechanics of orthodontic treatment.
Design procedures, theories of failure, material selection, design for fatigue, creep and relaxation, selection of gears and bearings and application of computer-aided design software. Prerequisite: MEC E 260 and 265, MAT E 202 and CIV E 270. Corequisite: MEC E 362.
Computer modelling in mechanical engineering. Simulation of mechanisms. Stress analysis and heat transfer using commercial software. Emphasis is on numerical model design including testing and verification methods, and the critical interpretation of the computed results. Credit cannot be obtained in both MEC E 468 and 568. Prerequisites: MEC E 265, 362, 370 or 371, 380, 390.
