“Human Musculoskeletal Biomechanics” ed. by Tarun Goswami
InTeOpP | 2011 | ISBN: 9533076386 9789533076386 | 252 pages | PDF | 15 MB


This book covers many aspects of human musculoskeletal biomechanics. As the title represents, aspects of forces, motion, kinetics, kinematics, deformation, stress, and strain are examined for a range of topics such as human muscles, skeleton, and vascular biomechanics independently or in the presence of devices. Topics range from image processing to interpret range of motion and/or diseases, to subject specific temporomandibular joint, spinal units, braces to control scoliosis, hand functions, spine anthropometric analyses along with finite element analyses. 

This book will be valuable to students at introductory level to researchers at MS and PhD level searching for science of specific muscle/vascular to skeletal biomechanics. 
This book will be an ideal text to keep for graduate students in biomedical engineering since it is available for free, students may want to make use of this opportunity.
