9780199632671: Biomechanics: Structures and Systems: A Practical Approach (The Practical Approach Series)

The study of the mechanical design of living organisms is one of the most rapidly expanding areas of biological research. Greater understanding of the ways in which an animal's body responds to mechanical stress has resulted in significant advances in the fields of zoology, physiology, and biomedical engineering. This volume is the first to provide a compilation of experimental protocols for researchers in these areas. This detailed work evaluates the performance of structures within the musculoskeletal and circulatory systems in the context of their physical activities. Topics covered include: mechanical work in locomotion; aerodynamics of flight; in vivo measurement of bone strain and tendon force; hydrostatic skeletons and muscular hydrostats; and circulatory structure and mechanics. Biomechanics - Structure and Systems: A Practical Approach and its companion Biomechanics - Materials: A Practical Approach together provide a comprehensive resource of proven experimental protocols and expert guidance for researchers in zoology, physiology, biomedical engineering, and related fields.

Review:

'any book which makes the methods of biomechanics more accessible is welcome: it will be particularly useful for undergraduate research projects or postgraduates at the start of their research'
Times Higher Education Supplement

'it is a fascinating, useful and inspirational text'
J. Vincent, Biologist (1993)

'there are many extremely helpful passages'
R. McNeill Alexander, Experimental Physiology (1993) 78

`both timely and welcome ... this new book fills an important niche: it is a compendium of practical information covering fluid and solid mechanics and related physiological areas ... it succeeds rather well at its appointed task of introducing researchers to the practical aspects of doing
biomechanics. I highly recommend this book as a starting point for anyone (especially graduate students) interested in adding biomechanical techniques to their research.'
David E. Alexander, University of Kansas, Animal Behaviour 46, 1993
