By Margareta Nordin, Victor Frankel

Now in its Fourth variation, Basic Biomechanics of the Musculoskeletal System uses an instantaneous and accomplished method of current scholars with a operating wisdom of biomechanical ideas of use within the evaluate and remedy of musculoskeletal disorder. The textual content opens with a bankruptcy that introduces the elemental terminology and ideas of biomechanics; the rest of the ebook then specializes in the biomechanics of tissues and buildings, the biomechanics of joints, and utilized biomechanics.

Indd d 28 28 A hypothetical load-deformation curve for a somewhat pliable fibrous structure, such as a long bone, is shown in Figure 2-9. The initial (straight line) portion of the curve, the elastic region, reveals the elasticity of the structure, that is, its capacity to return to its original shape after the load is removed. As the load is applied, deformation occurs but is not permanent; the structure recovers its original shape when unloaded. As loading continues, the outermost fibers of the structure begin to yield.

C. (1993). Mechanical properties of cortical and trabecular bone. Bone, 7, 285–344. Mechanical properties differ in the two bone types. Cortical bone is stiffer than cancellous bone, withstanding greater stress but less strain before failure. 0%. Because of its porous structure, cancellous bone has a large capacity for energy storage (Keaveny and Hayes, 1993). The physical difference between the two bone tissues is quantified in terms of the apparent density of bone, which is defined as the mass of bone tissue present in a unit of bone volume (gram per cubic centimeter [g/cc]).
