AUTHOR

SUMMARY

Just as the study of physiology requires an understanding of biochemistry, so the study of the mechanical properties and design of organisms requires a grounding in engineering and materials science. It is important for any biologist working in this area to acquire such knowledge, and this comprehensive book provides an overview of the subject in relation to biological materials. The mechanical testing of biological material presents many difficulties; the test methods are alien to most biologists, and the size and form in which biological specimens are presented can be perplexing to the engineer. The problems are compounded by the complexity of the materials involved, and the sophistication required in both test methods and analysis. This detailed book provides experimental protocols which cross the barriers of understanding between biologist and engineer, encouraging effective interdisciplinary communication. The chapters cover the properties and testing of bone, cartilage, and joints; liquids, composites, and tensile fibres; stiffness, fracture and adhesion; and plant material. The contributors are all experienced researchers who have developed successful methods for measuring and understanding the mechanical properties of biological materials. This book is an invaluable experimental resource for researchers involved in the analysis of biological materials, with backgrounds in biology, materials science, medical biomechanics, or agricultural engineering.Vincent, Julian F. V. is the author of 'Biomechanics - Materials', published 1992 under ISBN 9780199632220 and ISBN 0199632227.
