Biomechanics Concepts and Computation
Cambridge Texts in Biomedical Engineering
by Cees Oomens，Marcel Brekelmans，Frank Baaijens
What makes this book different from other basic mechanics or biomechanics
treatises? Of course there is the usual attention, as in standard books, focussed on
kinematics, equilibrium, stresses and strains. But several topics are discussed that
are normally not found in one single textbook or only described briefly.
Much attention is given to large deformations and rotations and non-linear constitutive equations (see Chapters 4, 9 and 10).
A separate chapter is devoted to one-dimensional visco-elastic behaviour (Chapter 5).
There is special attention to long slender fibre-like structures (Chapter 4).
The similarities and differences in describing the behaviour of solids and fluids and aspects of diffusion and filtration are discussed
(Chapters 12 to 16).
Basic concepts of mechanics and numerical solution strategies for partial differential equations are integrated in one single textboo
(Chapters 14 to 18).
