This book is a compendium of papers contributed by Y C Fung, Honorary Chairman of the World Council for Biomechanics, on the development of biomechanics in the past 30 years. Most of the articles are records of original contributions scattered in many journals. Having these papers collected together, classified according to subjects, and arranged in chronological order for each subject, will help the reader to obtain a total perspective of his work and his association with his colleagues. The selection ranges from constitutive equations, microcirculation, heart, lung, blood vessels, ureter and other internal organs, and tissue engineering. Several summary articles provide a fascinating guide to the evolution of ideas over this period of time. His work done in the field of aeroelasticity predates his biomechanics work. The applications of some general ideas of aeroelasticity are broader than the specific topics discussed, as exemplified by the sharing of ideas between aeronautics and biology.This valuable title will be of interest to anyone concerned with bioengineering and aeronautics, and should have a place in the library of people who are just starting their career as well as those who are well into it.
