Biomechanics is a fundamental topic of study that employs the principles of mechanics applied to human systems and organs. This textbook provides a comprehensive survey of this increasingly important subject. After a review of terminology, a summary of human anatomy, and a presentation of anthropometric data, the text discusses methods for biomechanical analyses including essential mathematics, mechanics, and modeling techniques. It then covers tissue biomechanics, kinematics and dynamics of human body models, and applications such as lifting, walking, swimming, and accident victim simulation. Each chapter contains reference lists for more in-depth study and problems sets with solutions.
