Cardiovascular Soft Tissue Mechanics by Stephen C. Cowin,Jay D. Humphrey PDF

By Stephen C. Cowin,Jay D. Humphrey

This specified quantity of the magazine of Elasticity represents the 1st in a brand new p- gram devoted to the occasional ebook of collections of invited, reviewed papers of topical curiosity. the aim of this application is to focus on the dev- opments and purposes within the mechanics of fabrics inside of particular parts that may improve progress and supply perception for the development of the sector in addition to advertise primary knowing and uncomplicated discovery. smooth Tissue Mechanics is a space of biomechanics that pulls seriously upon f- damental principles and fabric types from nonlinear elasticity and viscoelasticity. an important objective of this study is to appreciate these mechanics houses of center, artery, collagen and skeletal muscle mass that may be used for the prognosis of illnesses and the advance of human existence. This quantity illustrates how scan, modeling and computation is at present hired during this rising box. may possibly 2001 ROGER FOSDICK Editor-in-Chief magazine of Elasticity sixty one: ix–xii, 2000. ix Preface There are fundamental parts for the appliance of elasticity within the biomechanics of tissues: not easy tissue mechanics (e.g., bone, enamel, horns, etc.) and tender tissue - chanics (e.g., pores and skin, tendons, arteries, etc.). The distinguishing characteristic among those tissue varieties is the quantity of physiological “normal” deformation they adventure. whereas “hard” tissues simply adventure small deformations, delicate tissues mostly event huge deformations. From a biomechanics perspective delicate tissues fall in the realm of finite elasticity.
