Biomechanics at Micro- and Nanoscale Levels, Volume 2
This book is essential reading for those interested in understanding current research trends in biomechanics at micro- and nanoscale levels. It details the research carried out to date in this field by fourteen prominent researchers as part of a four-year government supported project which commenced in 2003. The coverage includes four broad areas: cell mechanics, cell response to mechanical stimulation, tissue engineering, and computational biomechanics.
