Biomechanics of Living Organs Series

Aim & scope

It is challenging to find all the biomechanical aspects related to human organs in a single resource. The Elsevier Biomechanics of Living Organs series provides an opportunity for students, researchers, clinicians, and engineers to study the main topics related to the biomechanics of a living organ of interest, in a single book written by scientific and clinical experts. This series is the first to synthesize - in each volume - the state of the art through complementary biomechanical studies carried out in a living organ of interest. Each volume will also provide a dedicated focus on the clinical applications addressed by the biomechanical models of the organ.
