About this book


The purpose of this book is to bring together experts from the medical and engineering fields in which trauma acts as a fulcrum in understanding the engineering approach to medical cases. The emphasis of this book is on the retrospective study of medical scenarios as seen from the engineering perspective. An in-depth study is required to ensure the accuracy of both medical and engineering data. Where static, dynamic, temperature and impact loads and velocities/accelerations are unknown; they are evaluated using the material properties and fracture geometry of case studies. From the analytical techniques, a prospective study would assist in predicting the outcome of post-trauma damage. Generally, the book covers a wide spectrum of trauma case studies and could be used in medico-legal test cases. The medical opinion can be translated into the engineering analysis there by validating or invalidating the total medical decisions. Hence the engineering profession in many simple and complicate medical test cases would assist the medical profession in providing results, thereby, cementing the bond between them on a common platform.

The book can be used by engineer and medical doctors actively involved in trauma and traumatic injuries, technologist, manufacturers, mathematicians and specialists in computer aided techniques and lawyers and experts in medico-legal cases involved in areas of validation and verifications. This book is also relevant to post graduate courses in trauma, biomechanics, medical equipments manufacture and for engineers, in particular, in the fields of impact, dynamics and medical management and trauma psychology.
