Synopsis:

The basic course of biomechanics deals with biomechanics of tissue. Description of material properties of bone, muscle, ligaments, tendons and CVS tissue is provided with special emphasis on nonlinear viscoelastic properties of living tissue. Selected chapters are devoted to description of constitutive models and tissue remodeling.
