Introduction to Continuum Biomechanics (Synthesis Lectures on Biomedical Engineering)

Buy

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.

Table of Contents: Tensor Calculus / Kinematics of a Continuum / Stress / Elasticity / Fluids / Blood and Circulation / Viscoelasticity / Poroelasticity and Thermoelasticity / Biphasic Theory

This book has evolved from notes that have been developed for a first-year graduate course in biomechanics at Rice University. The material is presented in the same order that is usually taught, and is easily covered in a standard, semester-long, three credit hour course.

Getting Started with CouchDB
When I was about nine years old, I had an Acorn Electron, a home computer developed by Acorn Machines and one of the major precursors to modern home computing. It was tiny by today’s standards, having just 32K of RAM, a 2MHz CPU, and with the staggering ability to store a massive 360 Kb on the 3 inch Amstrad disks I was using...
