Biomechanics: Concepts and Computation

Biomechanics: Concepts and Computation

Written for undergraduate biomedical engineering students, this book integrates the classical concepts of mechanics and computational modeling techniques through a wide range of fundamental biomechanics principals. The many examples and problems using biomedical applications will enable readers to practice and test their skills. Topics covered include vector calculus, static equilibrium, biological materials and continuum mechanics, and shape functions and numerical integration.

Later chapters make use of a finite element code written in MATLAB. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB files is available for download.
