Data Book on Mechanical Properties of Living Cells, Tissues, and Organs

Overview

A research project entitled Biomechanics of Structure and Function of Living Cells, Tissues, and Organs was launched in Japan in 1992. This data book presents the original, up-to-date information resulting from the research project, supplemented by some of the important basic data published previously. The aim of collecting the information is to offer accurate and useful data on the mechanical properties of living materials to biomechanical scientists, biomedical engineers, medical scientists, and clinicians.

Overview

A research project entitled Biomechanics of Structure and Function of Living Cells, Tissues, and Organs was launched in Japan in 1992. This data book presents the original, up-to-date information resulting from the research project, supplemented by some of the important basic data published previously. The aim of collecting the information is to offer accurate and useful data on the mechanical properties of living materials to biomechanical scientists, biomedical engineers, medical scientists, and clinicians. The data are presented in graphs and tables (one type of data per page) arranged in an easily accessible manner, along with details of the origin of the material and the experimental method. Together with its two companion volumes, Biomechanics: Functional Adaptation and Remodeling and Computational Biomechanics, the Data Book on Mechanical Properties of Living Cells, Tissues, and Organs is a timely and valuable contribution to the rapidly growing field of biomechanics.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Jeremy L. Gilbert
This is a detailed compendium of mechanical properties for tissues, cells, and proteins. Its structure is unique in terms of its layout, with one- or two-page summaries of published papers. The intent of this book is to provide detailed mechanical property data for researchers in the field of biomechanics on the tissues and structures of the body. They do this by compiling published data on a wide range of tissues, cells, and molecules. This book was written for those doing research involving the mechanical properties of tissues. Computer analysis as well as clinical studies require detailed mechanical properties, and this book is fairly detailed in its presentation of the data. The illustrations are clear and in black-and-white. The references are thorough and cover a wide time frame from the 1950s to the present. The index is only an author index, and the table of contents lists the data by type of tissues. The book is of good quality. This book is very useful for those interested in the detailed mechanical properties of tissues evaluated during the past 40 years. It will be very helpful to those who are performing finite element analysis of a good resource for finding more detailed articles on the mechanical properties evaluated.
