An appealing and engaging introduction to Continuum Mechanics in Biosciences This book presents the elements of Continuum Mechanics to people interested in applications to biological systems. It is divided into two parts, the first of which introduces the basic concepts within a strictly one-dimensional spatial context. This policy has been adopted so as to allow the newcomer to Continuum Mechanics to appreciate how the theory can be applied to important issues in Biomechanics from the very beginning. These include mechanical and thermodynamical balance, materials with fading memory and chemically reacting mixtures. In the second part of the book, the fully fledged three-dimensional theory is presented and applied to hyperelasticity of soft tissue, and to theories of remodeling, aging and growth. The book closes with a chapter devoted to Finite Element analysis. These and other topics are illustrated with case studies motivated by biomedical applications, such as vibration of air in the air canal, hyperthermia treatment of tumours, striated muscle memory, biphasic model of cartilage and adaptive elasticity of bone. The book offers a challenging and appealing introduction to Continuum Mechanics for students and researchers of biomechanics, and other engineering and scientific disciplines. Key features: Explains continuum mechanics using examples from biomechanics for a uniquely accessible introduction to the topic Moves from foundation topics, such as kinematics and balance laws, to more advanced areas such as theories of growth and the finite element method.. Transition from a one-dimensional approach to the general theory gives the book broad coverage, providing a clear introduction for beginners new to the topic, as well as an excellent foundation for those considering moving to more advanced application

The Addiction Concept

Whereas this finding appears inconsistent with the continuum concept , the study
is limited by the fact that the sample was drawn from addiction treatment centers (
62 % of the subjects having been sampled from an inpatient facility ) .

Psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, and other professionals involved in the treatment of substance abuse and addictive behaviors will welcome this new book as a bold and innovative approach for intervention! Using research, examples, and balanced discussion, the author describes the traditional/popular view of addiction, expounded by groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, as a disease, progressive in nature, which can never be cured but can be arrested. This book describes, analyzes, and exposes the weaknesses of the addiction concept and provides a sound rationale for an exciting and promising alternative: the lifestyle model. Focusing on behavioral changes and personal responsibility instead of helplessness and dependence, this important, alternative avenue of therapy can mean the difference between enervation and empowerment for many individuals.
