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.

Electric Power Distribution Handbook (Electric Power Engineering Series)
Electric Power Distribution Handbook (Electric Power Engineering Series)
Generation, transmission, distribution. Of the "big three" components of the electricity infrastructure, distribution typically gets the least attention. Yet, its impact on reliability, quality of service, and society often make distribution the most critical element. Today, deregulation and the emergence of distributed power generation...

Pipelined Multiprocessor System-on-Chip for Multimedia
Pipelined Multiprocessor System-on-Chip for Multimedia

This book describes analytical models and estimation methods to enhance performance estimation of pipelined multiprocessor systems-on-chip (MPSoCs). A framework is introduced for both design-time and run-time optimizations. For design space exploration, several algorithms are presented to minimize the area footprint of a pipelined MPSoC under...
