MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

The mechanics of biological tissues is a multidisciplinary and rapidly expanding area of research. The book points to important directions combining mechanical sciences with the exciting new developments in biology. It delivers state-of-the-art articles on: mechanics of tissues at the molecular, cellular, tissue and organ levels; mechanobiology, with particular reference to growth, remodeling, repair and aging; experimental, microstructural and continuum mechanical perspectives with an emphasis on modelling, and simulating therapeutic and diagnostic procedures; and implementation of mechanical models in numerical codes to provide a tool for the design and development of prostheses. Numerical models have the potential to greatly improve diagnostics and therapeutical procedures that involve tissue mechanics.
