Orthopaedic surgeons require not only an understanding of anatomy and clinical sciences, and competence in surgical skills, but also a strong foundation in biomechanics. The application of biomechanics plays an increasing role in modern orthopaedics; for example, correct decisions about the mode of treatment and choice of implants are just as important as operating precisely to reach a specific anatomical landmark. This book simplifies the core principles in orthopaedic biomechanics, giving readers the solid grounding they need to flourish in the specialty. Each topic is covered in a discrete, double-page spread, featuring concise text accompanied by illustrations or tables to give readers a solid understanding of the concepts discussed. This is a must-read guide for orthopaedic trainees at every level, and will be valuable for biomechanical researchers and other professionals in the field.

Pre-University Paper from the year 2012 in the subject Physics - Experimental Physics, grade: 1.0, , language: English, abstract: The aim of this coursework was to examine the relationship between the deceleration effect of the eddy currents and the initial velocity of the disc as well as the strength of the magnetic field. Additionally, this was compared to the acceleration effect that can be produced using a different set-up in which a freely rotating magnet is following a motorised conductor disc.

Die besten Erklärungen des Kult-Professores. Physik verstehen und dabei auch noch Spaß haben? Unmöglich? Generationen begeisterter Zuhörer beweisen das Gegenteil. Mit Wissenschaftsstar Walter Lewin wird das, was jeder über Physik wissen sollte, zum rasanten Abenteuer. Wildly entertaining! Über 30 Jahre lang hält Walter Lewin am MIT eine Einführungsvorlesung für Physik, die unter Studenten Kultstatus hat. Hinter jeder Stunde Unterricht stecken 40 Stunden Vorbereitung. Sein Publikum soll Spaß haben an Fragen, die es sich ohne Physik nie gestellt hätte. Es soll die Schönheit der Naturgesetze entdecken - nicht einfach Formeln von der Tafel abschreiben. Vor einer Abrissbirne begibt sich der Kultprofessor in Lebensgefahr, und keiner vergisst jemals die Umwandlung von Lage- in Bewegungsenergie. Aus Liebe zur Physik wird bei Walter Lewin Begeisterung, und die ist hochansteckend!

Die Physik der Zukunft

Unser Leben in 100 Jahren

Wie werden wir leben – in 20, 60, 100 Jahren? Star-Physiker Michio Kaku sagt der Menschheit eine rosige Zukunft voraus. Roboter werden uns die Alltagsarbeit abnehmen. Küchengeräte und andere Maschinen steuern wir mit der Kraft unserer Gedanken. Medizinische Nanobots werden aufmerksam durch unsere Blut- und Nervenbahnen eilen und sogar Krebs heilen. Zu lästigen Meetings schicken wir unser Hologramm – an einen Konferenztisch mit virtuellen Menschen und solchen aus Fleisch und Blut. Informationen können direkt über die Retina ins Kleinhirn projiziert werden. Wir beherrschen auch das Wetter, und Nationalstaaten spielen kaum noch eine Rolle. Trotzdem werden wir weiter reisen, uns treffen, Sport treiben und in die Kneipe gehen, weil Menschen nun mal so sind. Science-Fiction? Nein, seriöse Zukunftsforschung. Eingängig beschreibt Michio Kaku, wie der Weg in diese Zukunft aussieht – denn vieles davon wird heute schon in Wissenschaft und Industrie vorbereitet. Kaku hat weltweit 300 Forscher von Rang befragt, wie die gesellschaftlich-technische Entwicklung ihrer Voraussicht nach verlaufen wird: von der Künstlichen Intelligenz bis zur Raumfahrt, von der Medizin und Biologie bis zur Nanotechnologie. Und er präsentiert seine Befunde überzeugend und mit leichter Hand. «Was für ein wunderbares Abenteuer ist dies, der Versuch, das Undenkbare zu denken.» (New York Times Book Review) «Atemberaubend.» (Welt am Sonntag)
