About this book

This volume comprises the latest developments in both fundamental science and patient-specific applications, discussing topics such as: cellular mechanics; injury biomechanics; biomechanics of heart and vascular system; medical image analysis; and both patient-specific fluid dynamics and solid mechanics simulations. With contributions from researchers world-wide, the Computational Biomechanics for Medicine series of titles provides an opportunity for specialists in computational biomechanics to present their latest methodologies and advancements.

About the authors

Adam Wittek: Adam Wittek is a Professor in the School of Mechanical and Chemical Engineering at the University of Western Australia and Deputy Director of Intelligent Systems of Medicine Laboratory within the School of Mechanical and Chemical Engineering. His research is primarily in computational biomechanics for medicine and injury analysis and prevention.

 

Grand Joldes: Grand Joldes is a senior researcher at the University of Western Australia. His research area is the development and application of numerical methods in computational biomechanics.

 

Poul M. F. Nielsen: Poul's research focuses on using novel instrumentation, detailed computational models, and quantitative descriptions of physical processes to gain a better understanding of human physiology. Many of his projects couple mathematical modelling with innovative instrumentation to improve our ability to understand and interpret measurements of complex biological systems, subject to the constraints of well-understood physical conservation and balance laws.

 

Barry Doyle: Barry Doyle is a Senior Lecturer and NHMRC RD Wright Biomedical Fellow in the School of Mechanical and Chemical Engineering at the University of Western Australia and also Head of Vascular Engineering at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. His research is primarily in cardiovascular biomechanics.

 

Karol Miller: Karol Miller is a Winthrop Professor of Applied Mechanics and Director of Intelligent Systems for Medicine Laboratory at the University of Western Australia, Honorary Distinguished Professor at Cardiff University and a Laureate of Humboldt Research Award at University of Bremen. His research interests include biomechanics, numerical methods and robotics. His current primary research focus is computational biomechanics for medicine.
