New York St. Louis San Francisco: McGraw-Hill, 1987. BRAND NEW & Collectible. First Edition, First Printing. Bioengineering. 932 pages w/some 396 illustrations. Contributors list precedes 17 chapters addressing mechanical engineering technology with biological and physiological needs of the body. The handbook is organized to present the basic tissue properties first and proceeds to more applied subjects in the later chapters. properties of soft tissues. bone, tendon, ligaments, muscle, skin, and blood are covered in the early chapters. Later chapters cover models of the arterial system, the microcirculation, lung mechanics, cochlear mechanics, joint replacement, and other applications. It is a hallmak of bioengineering that quantitative, mathematical, and computational techniques such as those used in other disciplines of engineering are brought to bear on biomedical problems, both in the interpretation of biological phenomena and in the design of medical devices. While the accounts in the handbook are as mathematical as the subject demands, sufficient descriptive background has been included so that non-biologists can follow the medical applications and nonengineers can appreciate the physical principles involved." [Preface] Representative of the 41 papers are Mechanics of Soft Tissues (Fung); Thermal Properties of Tissues (Chato); Static Elastic Properties of Blood Vessels (Canfield, Dobrin); Models of Arterial System (Stettler, Niederer, Anliker); Respiratory Gas Exchange (Wagner); and Biomechanics of the Human Spine and Trunk (Schultz)..
