Description An introduction to biomechanics from a continuum mechanics perspective focusing on concepts of solid and fluid mechanics with applications to living systems. Topics in biosolid mechanics include stress, strain, constitutive relations, equilibrium, response to basic loading modes (extension, bending, and torsion), and buckling.  Topics in biofluid mechanics include motion of a continuum, constitutive relations, fundamental balance relations, control volume and semi-empirical methods.
