  • Re: Mechanical properties of muscles

    Yamada's book is a good source of this data, but is sadly out of print.
    Anyone know where we can buy a copy in good condition?
    Ours has mysteriously disappeared, and is sorely missed :-(.

    For similar data that is still in print, the best I have been able to
    find is :

    Data Book on Mechanical Properties of Living Cells, Tissues and Organs
    Eds Hiroyuki Abe, Kozaburo Hayashi & Masaaki Sato
    Spinger Verlag Tokyo, 1996 ISBN 4-431-70175-3 436 pages
