Wright State UniversityUnited States of America

Dr. Tarun Goswami graduated with a Doctor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Helsinki University of Technology. He worked in the aircraft industry before transitioning to academia.  He currently holds a joint appointment of Associate Professor in Biomedical, Industrial and Human Factors Engineering and Orthopaedic Surgery, Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, at Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio. He directs Orthopaedic Biomechanics Laboratory, Spinal Research Group and Device Development Center. Students from undergraduate, graduate, medical and residency programs work with him on a range of biomechanical topics. His research is supported by Air Force and Army and other orthopaedic related companies. He has published more than 75 papers in archival journals and numerous abstracts and presentations in conferences. For some of his works on total ankle replacement, total toe replacement, spinal disc replacement, fracture fixation devices, pacemaker lead designs and other topics patents are pending. He teaches such courses as Introduction to Biomedical Engineering, Biomechanics and Bioenergetics, Biomaterials, and Experimental Orthopaedic Engineering.

This book covers many aspects of Injury and Skeletal Biomechanics. As the title represents, the aspects of force, motion, kinetics, kinematics, deformation, stress and strain are examined in a range of topics such as human muscles and skeleton, gait, injury and risk assessment under given situations. Topics range from image processing to articular cartilage biomechanical behavior, gait behavior under different scenarios, and training, to musculoskeletal and injury biomechanics modeling and risk assessment to motion preservation. This book, together with "Human Musculoskeletal Biomechanics", is available for free download to students and instructors who may find it suitable to develop new graduate level courses and undergraduate teaching in biomechanics.
