Summary
  • "An Introduction to Biomechanics: Solids and Fluids, Analysis and Design introduces the undergraduate student to the basic approach of mechanics and reinforces the practice of this approach via the formulation and solution of a host of problems from cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, pulmonary, and cell mechanics."
  • "The book provides a consistent introductory approach to biomechanics that is intellectually rigorous, visually depicted, and still easily assimilated. Concepts are illustrated by complete derivations and over 80 examples and 300 figures, and reinforced by more than 300 exercise problems. Tabulated data from the literature allow realistic analyses and meaningful interpretations; computational results allow parametric exploration of material properties and boundary conditions
  • Perfect for a one or two-semester introduction to biomechanics, An Introduction to Biomechanics also includes brief introductions to nonlinear elasticity, viscoelasticity, nonlinear elastodynamics, and problems involving coupled solid-fluid interactions providing sufficient depth for study at the senior level and to motivate the need for further study."--Jacket
