Human Biomechanics

Fundamental Principles of mechanics applied to study the physiology of biological systems; Introduction to the basic concepts of continuum mechanics – tensors, finite deformation kinematics, stress, conservation laws of mass, momentum and energy applied to deformable continua; Rigid body kinematics in the context of applications in biomechanics. Application of biomechanics in tissues such as bone, ligaments, skeletal, cardiac muscles and cartilages. Skeletal muscle and mechanism of movement; Biomechanical implications of the sliding filament theory; velocity-force curves; Lever mechanics; Types of muscle fibers
