CRC Press – 2014 – 400 pages
Biomechanics: Principles and Practices draws on material from the biomechanics section of The Biomedical Engineering Handbook, Fourth Edition, and includes additional chapters containing highly relevant, cutting-edge material dealing with cellular mechanics. Edited by Donald A. Peterson and Joseph D. Bronzino, this comprehensive reference brings together contributions by world-class experts in the field. Offering an overview of major research topics in biomechanics, this is a useful resource for practitioners, scientists, and researchers in biomechanics as well as bioengineering graduate students studying biomechanics, human performance engineering, and human factors.
