Solid (Bio)mechanics: Challenges of the Next Decade: A Book Dedicated to Professor Gerhard A. Holzapfel

Gerhard Sommer (Editor), Kewei Li (Editor), Daniel Christopher Haspinger (Editor), R.W. Ogden (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthologypeer-review


This book offers a comprehensive and timely overview of the latest developments in the field of biomechanics and extensive knowledge of tissue structure, function, and modeling. Gathering chapters written by authoritative scientists, it reports on a range of continuum and computational models of solids, and related experimental works, for biomechanical applications. It discusses cutting-edge advances such as constitutive modeling and computational simulation of biological tissues and organs under physiological and pathological conditions, and their mechanical characterization. It covers  innovative studies on arteries, heart, valvular tissue, and thrombus, brain tumor, muscle, liver, kidney, and stomach, among others. Written in honor of Professor Gerhard A. Holzapfel,  the book provides specialized readers with a thorough and timely overview of different types of modeling in biomechanics, and current knowledge about biological structures and function.
