About the Authors
  • This is the first textbook that integrates both general and specific topics, theoretical background and biomedical engineering applications, as well as analytical and numerical approaches. This quantitative approach integrates the classical concepts of mechanics and computational modelling techniques, in a logical progression through a wide range of fundamental biomechanics principles. Online MATLAB-based software along with examples and problems using biomedical applications will motivate undergraduate biomedical engineering students to practice and test their skills. The book covers topics such as kinematics, equilibrium, stresses and strains, and also focuses on large deformations and rotations and non-linear constitutive equations, including visco-elastic behaviour and the behaviour of long slender fibre-like structures. This is the definitive textbook for students.

    • A quantitative biomechanics approach written for a biomedical engineering course
    • Begins from basic concepts of mechanics and ends with numerical solution procedures based on Finite Element Modeling
    • Website includes FEM code written in MATLAB, solutions to exercises in the text and extra problem sets

    Hi, I have the research paper in the field of medical electronics. Mathematical modeling of the lung was the topic of the project. So I researched the biomechanics books. Thank you.
