Manohar M. Panjabi and Augustus A. White: Biomechanics in the
Musculoskeletal System. W B Saunders (ISBN: 0443065853, www.wbsaunders.com
or 1 800 545 2522).

This textbook, written by an engineer and a clinician, is for medical
professionals and bioengineers engaged in the study of the musculoskeletal
system. The textbook is designed to teach basic principles of mechanics in
a way quite different from other biomechanics books. Each biomechanical
principle or concept is presented in a systematic way, with precise
definition, description, and abundant use of illustrated-clinical and
non-clinical examples. Mathematics is kept to absolute minimum. The book is
divided into nine chapters: 1. The Basics; 2. Motion of Rigid Bodies; 3.
Motions and Loads; 4. Loads on Rigid Bodies; 5. Materials Under Loads; 6.
Structures Under Loads; 7. Vibrations; 8. Joint Friction, Wear and
Lubrication; and 9. Material Properties.
