Biodynamics : circulation by Y. C Fung( Book )

11 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 307 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
Classical and computational solid mechanics by Y. C Fung( Book )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thin-shell structures; theory, experiment and design [proceedings] by Y. C Fung( Book )

17 editions published in 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 296 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 255 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

Tributes to Yuan-Cheng Fung on his 90th birthday : biomechanics : from molecules to man( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
