Abstract

This book contains data on the mechanical properties of cells, tissues, and organs from humans and animals, useful for biomechanical scientists, biomedical engineers, and clinicians. Numerous data on the mechanical properties of living materials from various parts of the body have been published in the past decades. Because we cannot include all of it here, the editors have selected important and useful data from reports published mostly after 1970. In particular, we have focused on reliable data whose mechanical parameters are well defined.
