Item description for Nonlinear Theory of Elasticity: Applications in Biomechanics by Larry Alan Taber...

Soft biological tissues often undergo large (nearly) elastic deformations that can be analyzed using the nonlinear theory of elasticity. Because of the varied approaches to nonlinear elasticity in the literature, some aspects of the subject may be difficult to appreciate. This book attempts to clarify and unify those treatments, illustrating the advantages and disadvantages of each through various examples in the mechanics of soft tissues. Applications include muscle, arteries, the heart, and embryonic tissues.

Reviews - What do customers think about Nonlinear Theory of Elasticity: Applications in Biomechanics?

Excellent reference for first course  Nov 17, 2007
This book was recommended by my graduate advisor, and it is a great "first place" to go for an introduction to the subject. Other books in the field tend to be more advanced, assuming the reader has a firm grasp of the mathematical preliminaries and concepts of stress and strain in nonlinear applications. In addition, Taber works through examples relevant to problems in biomechanics, although I was hoping for examples with surface (shell) geometries. Regardless, I do highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a good place to start in this challenging field.
