Biomechanics: Mechanical Properties of Living Tissues by Yuan-Cheng Fung (auth.)

By Yuan-Cheng Fung (auth.)

The aim of this e-book is still kind of like that acknowledged within the first version: to offer a finished point of view of biomechanics from the stand element of bioengineering, body structure, and clinical technology, and to increase mechanics via a chain of difficulties and examples. My three-volume set of Bio­ mechanics has been accomplished. they're entitled: Biomechanics: Mechanical houses of residing Tissues; Biodynamics: stream; and Biomechanics: movement, move, rigidity, and progress; and this can be the 1st quantity. The mechanics prerequisite for all 3 volumes is still on the point of my ebook a primary direction in Continuum Mechanics (3rd version, Prentice-Hall, Inc. , 1993). within the decade of the Eighties the sphere of Biomechanics increased tremen­ dously. New advances were made in all fronts. those who impact the elemental realizing of the mechanical houses of dwelling tissues are defined intimately during this revision. The references are stated to date.

7 The Newtonian Viscous Fluid A Newtonian viscous fluid is a fluid for which the shear stress is linearly proportional to the strain rate. For a Newtonian fluid the stress-strain relationship is specified by the equation (1) where aij is the stress tensor, ~l is the strain rate tensor, f0ijkl is a tensor of viscosity coefficients of the fluid, and p is the static pressure. The term - Pbij represents the state of stress possible in a fluid at rest (when ~l = 0). The static pressure p is assumed to depend on the density and temperature of the fluid according to an equation of state.

Resolve the vector 1 T into three components in the direction of the coordinate axes and denote them by "11, "12, "13' Then "11, "12,"13 are the stress components acting on the small cube. Similarly, we may consider surfaces LlS 2 , LlS 3 perpendicular to X2 and x 3 , the stress vectors acting on them, and their components in Xl> X2' X3 directions. We can arrange the components in a square matrix: * All vectors are printed in bold face in this book. 2: 2 Notations of stress components.

To illustrate shear, consider a circular cylindrical shaft as shown in Fig. 3:1(c). When the shaft is twisted, the elements in the shaft are distorted in a manner shown in Fig. 3: l(d). In this case, the angle IX may be taken as a strain measure. It is more customary, however, to take tan IX, or! tan IX, as the shear strain; the reasons for this will be elucidated later.
