With Biomechanics : Motion, Flow, Stress, and Growth, the premier bioengineering scientist Y C. Fung concludes a discussion first introduced in his seminal work, Biomechanics (1981), and further articulated in Biodynamics (1984). This third volume not only stands alone as a comprehensive survey of the broad field of biomechanics, but also complements the explorations of the first two volumes, maintaining its emphasis on methods of classical engineering as applied to biological and physiological phenomena. While consistently recognizing the importance of historical precedence and perspective, Fung presents the most contemporary literature and the latest thinking in biomechanics in this increasingly complex interdisciplinary subject. Considered here are the mechanics of body movement ; the flow external to an animal in motion, and the internal flow of blood, gas, water, and other body fluids ; the stress and strain in tissues and organs, the strength, trauma, and tolerance limits of organs ; and the growth and change of living organisms in response to stress and strain. A generous number of problems to be solved and a carefully selected list of references are especially useful and should help to stimulate thought and discussion among advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and others with an interest in bioengineering and medicine.
