Description

Numerical Methods and Advanced Simulation in Biomechanics and Biological Processes covers new and exciting modeling methods to help bioengineers tackle problems for which the Finite Element Method is not appropriate. The book covers a wide range of important subjects in the field of numerical methods applied to biomechanics, including bone biomechanics, tissue and cell mechanics, 3D printing, computer assisted surgery and fluid dynamics. Modeling strategies, technology and approaches are continuously evolving as the knowledge of biological processes increases. Both theory and applications are covered, making this an ideal book for researchers, students and R&D professionals.

Key Features

  • Provides non-conventional analysis methods for modeling
  • Covers the Discrete Element Method (DEM), Particle Methods (PM), MessLess and MeshFree Methods (MLMF), Agent-Based Methods (ABM), Lattice-Boltzmann Methods (LBM) and Boundary Integral Methods (BIM)
  • Includes contributions from several world renowned experts in their fields
  • Compares pros and cons of each method to help you decide which method is most applicable to solving specific problems

Readership

Advanced researchers in computational biomechanics; Academic staff and professors of biomechanics/bioengineering courses; Graduate students in bioengineering, biomechanics, engineering mechanics; Companies that have RTD departments devoted to bioengineering and tissue engineering; Research personnel in industrial sectors and research companies involved in bioengineering, biomechanics, tissue engineering
