Skeletal Tissue Mechanics

Knowledge of the mechanical properties of the skeletal system is important in understanding how our body works and how to repair it when it is damaged. This textbook describes the biomechanics of bone, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. It is rigorous in its approach to the mechanical properties of the skeleton yet it does not neglect the biological properties of skeletal tissue or require mathematics beyond calculus. Time is taken to introduce basic mechanical and biological concepts, and the approaches used for some of the engineering analyses are purposefully limited. The book is an effective bridge between engineering, veterinary, biological and medical disciplines and will be welcomed by students and researchers in biomechanics, orthopedics, physical anthropology, zoology, and veterinary science.Schematic diagram shows measurement of osteonal BMU advancement rate in a longitudinal Section. x is the distance between the ...
