This unique quantity of the magazine of Elasticity represents the 1st in a brand new p- gram devoted to the occasional ebook of collections of invited, reviewed papers of topical curiosity. the aim of this application is to focus on the dev- opments and purposes within the mechanics of fabrics inside of particular components which could increase progress and supply perception for the development of the sector in addition to advertise primary realizing and simple discovery. tender Tissue Mechanics is a space of biomechanics that pulls seriously upon f- damental rules and fabric versions from nonlinear elasticity and viscoelasticity. a huge target of this examine is to appreciate these mechanics houses of center, artery, collagen and skeletal muscle tissues that may be used for the analysis of illnesses and the advance of human lifestyles. This quantity illustrates how test, modeling and computation is at the moment hired during this rising box. might 2001 ROGER FOSDICK Editor-in-Chief magazine of Elasticity sixty one: ix–xii, 2000. ix Preface There are fundamental components for the appliance of elasticity within the biomechanics of tissues: demanding tissue mechanics (e.g., bone, the teeth, horns, etc.) and smooth tissue - chanics (e.g., epidermis, tendons, arteries, etc.). The distinguishing characteristic among those tissue kinds is the volume of physiological “normal” deformation they adventure. whereas “hard” tissues basically adventure small deformations, smooth tissues quite often adventure huge deformations. From a biomechanics point of view delicate tissues fall in the realm of finite elasticity.
