Development of a MATLAB GUI to Assist the Active Comprehension of Biomedical Transport Phenomena Using a Visual Aid
Date of Graduation
Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering
Studies show that inductive teaching methods for Biomedical Transport Phenomena greatly benefit from an accompanying visual aid. The following project aimed to develop a MATLAB GUI application that illustrates steady-state heat transfer with a graph and heat map using user-defined boundary conditions and numerical parameters. The application was evaluated using a survey that first familiarized the user with the GUI by running through heat transfer exercises, then allowed the user to experiment with the application, and finally asked users about their experiences using a questionnaire. The responses indicate that the GUI was received positively overall, and that a MATLAB component to the class would have aided these students’ understanding of the material.
