This is the first textbook that integrates both general and specific topics, theoretical background and biomedical engineering applications, as well as analytical and numerical approaches. This quantitative approach integrates the classical concepts of mechanics and computational modelling techniques, in a logical progression through a wide range of fundamental biomechanics principles. Online MATLAB-based software along with examples and problems using biomedical applications will motivate undergraduate biomedical engineering students to practice and test their skills. The book covers topics such as kinematics, equilibrium, stresses and strains, and also focuses on large deformations and rotations and non-linear constitutive equations, including visco-elastic behaviour and the behaviour of long slender fibre-like structures. This is the definitive textbook for students.

Review of the hardback: 'Biomechanics: Concepts and Computation is one of the most important textbooks written in the field of biomechanical education.' Amit Gefen, v
Review of the hardback: 'This text does an outstanding job of covering both the core and advanced topics of biomechanics that are appropriate to both undergraduate and beginning graduate biomedical engineering education ... I strongly recommend this text to any biomedical engineering problem offering a concentration/track in biomechanics.' Robert Spilker, Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Chair, RPI, USA
