Introduction to bioengineering by Shu Chien( )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 1,485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is written for beginning students of bioengineering, and is aimed at instilling a sense of engineering in them." "Engineering is invention and designing things that do not exist in nature for the benefit of humanity. Invention can be taught by making inventive thinking a conscious part of our daily life. This is the approach taken by the authors of this book. Each author discusses an ongoing project, and gives a sample of a professional publication. Students are asked to work through a sequence of assignments and write a report."--Jacket
Biomechanics : mechanical properties of living tissues by Y. C Fung( Book )

Classical and computational solid mechanics by Y. C Fung( )

28 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and held by 1,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book has been written for engineers and engineering scientists in a style that is readable, precise, concise, and practical. It gives first priority to the formulation of problems, presenting the classical results as the gold standard, and the numerical approach as a tool for obtaining solutions. The classical part is a revision of the well-known text Foundations of Solid Mechanics, with a much-expanded discussion on the theories of plasticity and large elastic deformation with finite strains. The computational part is all new and is aimed at solving many major linear and nonlinear boundary-value problems

An introduction to the theory of aeroelasticity by Y. C Fung( Book )

43 editions published between 1955 and 2008 in English and Russian and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Geared toward advanced undergraduates and graduate students, this outstanding text was written by one of the founders of bioengineering and modern biomechanics. It offers unusually thorough coverage of the interaction of aerodynamic forces and elastic structures. It has also proven highly useful to designers and engineers concerned with flutter, structural dynamics, flight loads, and related subjects.An introductory chapter covers concepts of aerodynamics, elasticity, and mechanical vibrations. Chapters 2 through 11 survey aeroelastic problems, their historical background, basic physical concepts, and the principles of analysis. Chapters 12 through 15 contain the fundamentals of oscillating airfoil theory and a brief summary of experimental results. Each chapter is followed by a bibliography, and 147 illustrations and 20 tables illuminate the text.--
Biomechanics, its foundations and objectives by Y. C Fung( Book )

21 editions published between 1970 and 1972 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biomechanics : circulation by Y. C Fung( Book )

18 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and German and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theory of blood circulation is one of the oldest in science, and remains a vigorous field of study with many features that have been described in physical and mathematical terms. In Biomechanics: Circulation, Fung presents a treatment of the fundamental biomechanics of the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems, using a mathematical approach to illuminate problems in experiemental design, data collection, modeling, observations, and theory. This second edition includes extensive changes incorporating major advances in hemodynamics that have occurred during the past decade. There are new chapters on coronary blood flow and skeletal muscle microcirculation. As in the first edition, Biomechanics: Circulation emphasizes the coupling of fluids and solids in the cardiovascular pulmonary systems, and consistently brings both morphology and rheology to bear on the analysis of blood flow. Numerous exercises are proposed to encourage the reader to formulate and solve problems. Together with his other two treatises on biomechanics (Biomechanics: Mechanical Properties of Living Tissue and Biomechanics: Motion, Flow, Stress and Growth), this book confirms that "although it is clear that Fung has made substantial contributions as a researcher ... it can equally well be said that he is an exceptional teacher" (Quart. Rev. Biol.). Y.C. Fung is professor emeritus in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of California at San Diego
Biodynamics : circulation by Y. C Fung( Book )

19 editions published between 1983 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a continuation ofmy Biomechanics. The first volume deals with the mechanical properties of living tissues. The present volume deals with the mechanics ofcirculation. A third volume willdeal with respiration, fluid balance, locomotion, growth, and strength. This volume is called Bio dynamics in order to distinguish it from the first volume. The same style is followed. My objective is to present the mechanical aspects ofphysiology in precise terms ofmechanics so that the subject can become as lucid as physics. The motivation of writing this series of books is, as I have said in the preface to the first volume, to bring biomechanics to students ofbioengineer ing, physiology, medicine, and mechanics. I have long felt a need for a set of books that willinform the students ofthe physiological and medical applica tions ofbiomechanics, and at the same time develop their training in mechan ics. In writing these books I have assumed that the reader already has some basic training in mechanics, to a level about equivalent to the first seven chapters of my First Course in Continuum Mechanics (Prentice Hall, 1977). The subject is then presented from the point of view of life science while mechanics is developed through a sequence of problems and examples. The main text reads like physiology, while the exercises are planned like a mechanics textbook. The instructor may filla dual role :teaching an essential branch of life science, and gradually developing the student's knowledge in mechanics
Thin-shell structures; theory, experiment and design [proceedings] by Y. C Fung( Book )

20 editions published in 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book describes the status of the theoretical and experimental understanding of the mechanics of thin-walled shell structures as known in the 1970's. The distinctive feature of this book is in its emphasis on experimental evaluation of the theories, and on practical concerns for shell design. The book is the edited proceedings of the Symposium on Thin Shell Structures: Theory, Experiment and Design which was held in Pasadena, California from June 29 to 30, 1972. (Author)
Frontiers in biomechanics by G. W Schmid-Schönbein( Book )

5 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biomechanics is concerned with the response of living matter to forces, and its study has taken long strides in recent years. In the past two decades, biomechanics has brought improved understanding of normal and patho physiology of organisms at molecular, cellular, and organ levels; it has helped developing medical diagnostic and treatment procedures; it has guided the design and manufacturing of prosthesis and instruments; it has suggested the means for improving human performance in the workplace, sports, and space; it has made us understand trauma in war and in peace. Looking toward the future, we see many more areas of possible development such as: reduction in heart diseases and atherosclerosis improved vascular assist and replacement devices, including a permanent artifical heart enhanced oxygen transport in the lung understanding and control of growth and changes mechanics of neuromuscular control and robotics prevention of joint degeneration permanent total joint replacements prevention of low back pain workplace designs to enhance productivity ambulation systems for the handicapped fully implantable hearing aids improved understanding of the mechanisms for permanent disability injuries identification of factors such as alcohol use and disease influence on impact tolerance improved cellular bioreactor designs mechanics of DNA and its application in biotechnology. * Obviously, the attainment of these prospects will greatly improve the quality of human life and reduce the costs of living. * This list is from a report by the U.S. National Committee on Biomechanics, April, 1985

9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a tribute to Professor Yuan-Cheng Fung, the Father of Biomechanics and a pioneer in Bioengineering, in honor of his 90th Birthday. The book consists of articles contributed by his colleagues, students, friends and family. These articles illustrate Professor Fung's profound influence on outstanding leaders in bioengineering, especially biomechanics, and on the life and work of all people who have been in contact with him. The scientific topics covered range from fundamentals of science and engineering (e.g., residual stress, flow dynamics, and cellular signaling) to clinical disorders (e.g., atherosclerosis, diabetes, and hypertension). The articles cover the whole spectrum of biological hierarchy, from genes/molecules to cells/tissues, and organs/systems, with close correlations between engineering and biomedical sciences. This book provides an excellent view of the marvelous contributions of Professor Fung as a Renaissance Man
