Introduction to Continuum Biomechanics Paperback / softback
Part of the Synthesis Lectures on Biomedical Engineering series
This book is concerned with the study of continuum mechanics applied to biological systems, i.e., continuum biomechanics.
This vast and exciting subject allows description of when a bone may fracture due to excessive loading, how blood behaves as both a solid and fluid, down to how cells respond to mechanical forces that lead to changes in their behavior, a process known as mechanotransduction.
We have written for senior undergraduate students and first year graduate students in mechanical or biomedical engineering, but individuals working at biotechnology companies that deal in biomaterials or biomechanics should also find the information presented relevant and easily accessible.
