METHODS IN BIOMECHANICS AND BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING
primary aims of the journal are to provide a means of communicating the advances
being made in the areas of biomechanics and biomedical engineering, and to
stimulate interest in the continually emerging computer based technologies which
are being applied in these multidisciplinary subjects. The journal will also
provide a focus for the importance of integrating the disciplines of engineering
with medical technology and clinical expertise. Such integration will have a
major impact on health care in the future.
High quality research articles form
the main body of the journal. These contributed papers will cover both the
engineering and clinical aspects of computer methods in biomedical engineering.
Topics covered include the mechanical response of bone and bone/tissue/ implant
analysis, modelling of biomaterials, material identification, human body impact,
computer assisted surgery, surgical simulation, computer animation, and medical
imaging. Dental mechanics, biofluids, cardiovascular mechanics, soft-tissue
modelling, and joint/ ligament mechanics are also topics of primary importance.
As well as providing a forum where advances in these complex areas can be
published and discussed in open academic debate, the journal also contains
review and feature articles, technical notes and short communications and a news
and reviews section.
