Biomechanics is the study of the mechanics of tissues. Though the subject is typically considered a foundational aspect of Bioengineering, it is often part of a Biophysics curriculum, as it involves many concepts from physics in order to fully understand the biological mechanisms.

The types of tissues we are going to study are muscles, lungs and blood vessels, each with special characteristics to accomplish contraction functions and others.

  2. The Biomechanics Of Skeletal Muscles part 2
  3. The Biomechanics Of The Lung
  4. Hemodynamics



If you are interested in studying biomechanics you can check out the biomechanics department at Wikiversity! It is still under heave (heavy) construction, but you are encouraged to participate, learn what you can, and connect readers with the information that you know, or know where to attain, on the subject itself.
