Mechanics of Biological Systems: Introduction to Mechanobiology and Experimental Techniques (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 3 weeks.


This book is an introduction to the mechanical properties, the force generating capacity, and the sensitivity to mechanical cues of the biological system.To understand how these qualities govern many essential biological processes, we also discuss how to measure them. However, before delving into the details and the techniques, we will first learn the operational definitions in mechanics, such as force, stress, elasticity, viscosity and so on. This book will explore the mechanics at three different length scales - molecular, cellular, and tissue levels - sequentially, and discuss the measurement techniques to quantify the intrinsic mechanical properties, force generating capacity, mechanoresponsive processes in the biological systems, and rupture forces.
