Fung concludes a discussionfirst introduced in his seminal work, Biomechanics: MechanicalProperties of Living Tissues, and further articulated in Biomechanics:Circulation. This third volume not only stands alone as acomprehensive survey of the broad field of biomechanics, but alsocomplements the explorations of the first two volumes, maintaining itsemphasis on methods of classical engineering as applied to biologicaland physiological phenomena. While consistently recognizing theimportance of historical precedence and perspective, Fung presents themost contemporary literature and the latest thinking in biomechanicsin thei increasingly complex interdisciplinary subject.Considered here are 1.) the mechanics of body movement- 2.)the flow external to an animal in motion, and the internal flow ofblood, gas, water, and other body fluids- 3.) the stress and strain,and the strength, trauma, and tolerance limits of tissues and organs-and 4.) the growth and change in living organisms in response tobiomechanical principles. A generous number of problems to be solvedand a carefully selected list of references are especially useful andshould help to stimulate thought and discussion among advancedundergraduates, graduate students, and others with an interest inbioengineering and medicine.
