The objective of this book remains the same as that stated in the first edition: to present a comprehensive perspective of biomechanics from the standpoint of bioengineering, physiology, and medical science, and to develop mechanics through a sequence of problems and examples. My three-volume set of Bio­ mechanics has been completed.

They are entitled:

  • Biomechanics: Mechanical Properties of Living Tissues;
  • Biodynamics: Circulation; and
  • Biomechanics: Motion, Flow, Stress, and Growth; and this is the first volume.

The mechanics prerequisite for all three volumes remains at the level of my book A First Course in Continuum Mechanics (3rd edition, Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1993). In the decade of the 1980s, the field of Biomechanics expanded tremen­ doubly. New advances have been made on all fronts. Those that affect the basic understanding of the mechanical properties of living tissues are described in detail in this revision. The references are brought up to date.
