Human difficulties encountered in the attempt to promote transfer of technology between different disciplines are not new, as outlined in the BSSM strain measurement lecture published in this volume. This transfer is, however, essential, if the researcher is to avoid well known pitfalls and make valid measurements based on well established practices. With this in mind, the BSSM Bioengineering Measurements Technical Group organised this publication. Examples in this text demonstrate a hybrid approach, where a variety of techniques, theoretical, experimental and numerical, are combined to analyse the same product. This multi-discipline methodology leads to an enhanced understanding of the merits and limitations of each technique and provides information which enables the researcher to make a better informed judgement of the significance of the data. It is hoped that these examples will encourage more researchers to adopt a wider approach. The text is illustrated with 126 photographs, 124 illustrations, numerous tables and graphs and includes over 780 references.
