Biomechanics of diarthrodial joints, Volume 1
These books make up a two-volume set which discusses the biomechanics of diarthrodial joints in a sophisticated and comprehensive manner. The books provide information on the latest thinking experimental analyses and theory regarding the topic. The striking advances in the past 20 years that have occurred through specialized and interdisciplinary studies on connective tissues from the macroscopic to the molecular level are approached in the books by the world's foremost leading experts in biomechanics. The selection of topics covered in this book on diarthrodial joints are currently considered to be the most important areas of biomechanical research today.
