A PRIMER OF BIOMECHANICS is the 1st quantity of its variety to give the foundations of biomechanics with a hugely scientific orientation. Dr. Lucas and his colleagues (specialists in biomechanics) have assembled a pragmatic advisor using case displays to make this very technical and intricate fabric palatable to the orthopaedic resident and practitioner. This "user-friendly" textual content is extra greater by means of good built-in chapters protecting the entire easy fabrics and the most recent details of this swiftly evolving box from the point of view of its priceless program. every one case presentation is via a close, yet simply comprehensible clarification of the biomechanical ideas concerned and comprises protocols for therapy. This quantity is a must have for orthopaedic citizens and practitioners.

Lea & Febiger, Philadelphia, 1970, pp. 27. 5. (continued) 34 2. 75W Thus we find that the force acting on the hip during normal walking is about three times body weight or a little less. This is not a very precise value because of all the assumptions and approximations involved, but it does serve to alert the orthopaedist to the surprisingly large forces that must be managed in such common procedures as a nailed hip fracture or a total hip arthroplasty. Finally, to complete the analysis, we determine the angle, a, between the joint force and the y axis.

The same is true when compari ng vario us metals. Even though one cannot detect a difference in the way metals behave by pullin g them in one 's bare hands, special techniques exist (see chapter 12) that allow measurement of slight, but often very important, differences in stiffnesses of material s. 1 Elastic Moduli of Some Common Orthopaedic Materials The elastic modul us or stiffness of orthopaedic material s is an important factor in determining the response of the material in a structure and in design.
