Dear List members,

I am interested in the dynamic response of tendon (human or other =
species) and wanted to compil
some papers on this topics. Does anyone have few references on this as =
I have an entry key to develop my knowledge on tendon behavior !


Thanks for all these answers !
I also have some papers in PDF. People interested just have to ask !

You should have a look at the book of YC Fung, Biomechanics: Mechanical
Properties of Living Tissues and the paper by Zajac FE (1989) Muscle and
tendon: properties, models, scaling, and application to biomechanics and
motor control. In Bourne, J.R. (ed.): CRC Critical Rev in Biomed Eng.,
vol. 17 (#4), 359-411.
