about this item

This book portrays the commonality of tissue micro-structure that dictates physiological function in various organs (microstructure-function relation). Tissue and organ models are used to illustrate physiological functions based on microstructure. Fiber scale properties such as orientation and crimp are described in detail. Structurally-based constitutive models are given throughout the book, not only to avoid ambiguities in material characterization, but also to offer insights into the function, structure, and mechanics of tissue components. A statement of future directions of the field is also given, including how advancements, such as state-of-the-art computational modeling and optical measurements of tissue/cells structures, are taking structure-based modeling to the next level.

This book also:

Provides a comprehensive view of tissue modeling across multiple systems

Broadens readers’ understanding of state-of-the-art computational modeling and optical measurements of tissue/cells structures

Describes in detail fiber scale properties such as orientation and crimp
