A PRIMER OF BIOMECHANICS is the 1st quantity of its type to give the foundations of biomechanics with a hugely medical orientation. Dr. Lucas and his colleagues (specialists in biomechanics) have assembled a realistic consultant using case displays to make this very technical and intricate fabric palatable to the orthopaedic resident and practitioner. This "user-friendly" textual content is additional more advantageous via good built-in chapters protecting all of the uncomplicated fabrics and the newest details of this swiftly evolving box from the point of view of its important software. each one case presentation is via an in depth, yet simply comprehensible rationalization of the biomechanical ideas concerned and comprises protocols for remedy. This quantity is a must have for orthopaedic citizens and practitioners.

8. Force is no longer proportional to strain for specimens of the same material with different original cross-sectional areas. The letter "a" represents data for the specimen of original length crosssectional area Ao ; "b" represents data for the specimen of original length 2'0' cross-sectional area Ao ; "c " represents data for the specimen of original length cross-sectional area 2Ao ' '0' '0' Stress is represented by (J' and is equal to F/A o (where A o is perpendicular to the applied load, F).

2 Couples > A couple is a force system consisting of two parallel forces of equal magnitude and opposite direction that produces rotation but no translation. 1, produce a couple that causes the spacecraft to rotate, but do not tend to displace it to the side. 2 STATICS When subjected to a moment, an object tends to rotate unless an equal and opposite moment acts on the body. 4) This is in fact an extension of Newton's third law, which we can now state as follows: If the sum of the fo rces is zero, there is no translation , and , if the sum ofthe moments is zero, there is no rotation.

The momen t M produced by this force couple is equal to 2( x r. 1 MOMENTS The tendenc y of a force to produce rotation is called a moment, and the moment of a given force depends on both the magnit ude of the force and the perpendicular distance from the line of action of that force to the axis of rotation . 2, where the axis of rotation is defined by the door hinges and the distance , I, is perpendicular to both the line of action of the force and the axis of rotation .
