Bionik als Wissenschaft: Erkennen - Abstrahieren - Umsetzen by Werner Nachtigall

By Werner Nachtigall

Der Begriff „BIONIK“ wird gerne als Kunstwort gekennzeichnet, zusammengesetzt aus BIOlogie und TechNIK. Bionik stellt einerseits ein Fach dar, in dem geforscht und ausgebildet wird, und kennzeichnet andererseits eine Sichtweise, nämlich die des „Lernens von der Natur für die Technik“. Darüber sind in der Zwischenzeit neben populär wissenschaftlichen Werken eine Reihe von Fachbüchern erschienen. Werner Nachtigall hat darin mit der 2. Auflage seines bei Springer erschienenen Buchs „BIONIK – Grundlagen und Beispiele für Ingenieure und Naturwissenschaftler“ einen Meilenstein gesetzt. In diesem Buch kennzeichnet er die Untergliederung des Fachs und bespricht detailliert dessen Forschungsgegenstände. Dagegen fehlte bislang eine Darstellung, die sich mit den erkenntnistheoretischen Grundlagen wie mit der pragmatischen Vorgehensweise der Bionik systematisch befasst, die ja mit der ihr eigenen Prinzip-Abstraktion zwischen der belebten Welt als Vor-Bild und der technischen Umsetzung als Ab-Bild vermitteln will. Das vorliegende Werk schließt diese Lücke mit drei großen Abschnitten: Biologische foundation: Erforschen, Beschreiben, Beurteilen. – Abstraktion biologischer Befunde: Herausarbeiten allgemeiner Prinzipien. – Umsetzung in die Technik: Prinzipvergleich, Konzeptuelles, Vorgehensweise.

Interpreting Biomedical Science: Experiment, Evidence, and by Ülo Maiväli

By Ülo Maiväli

Interpreting Biomedical technological know-how: test, facts, and trust discusses what can get it wrong in organic technology, delivering an independent view and cohesive realizing of clinical tools, statistics, facts interpretation, and clinical ethics which are illustrated with sensible examples and real-life purposes.

Casting a large web, the reader is uncovered to medical difficulties and ideas via knowledgeable views from heritage, philosophy, sociology, and the social psychology of technology.

The e-book indicates the diversities and similarities among disciplines and diversified eras and illustrates the idea that whereas sound technique is critical for the development of technology, we can't be triumphant and not using a correct tradition of doing things.

  • Features theoretical strategies followed by means of examples from organic literature
  • Contains an advent to varied equipment, with an emphasis on statistical speculation testing
  • Presents a transparent argument that ties the motivations and ethics of person scientists to the good fortune in their science
  • Provides tips on the right way to guard opposed to medical misconduct, fraud, and retractions
  • Arms younger scientists with useful wisdom that they could use each day

Tissue Mechanics by Stephen C. Cowin

By Stephen C. Cowin

Tissue Mechanics , moment version is set the mechanics of tissues to be used on the complex undergraduate point or above. Tissues transmit mechanical rather a lot similar to bridges and development buildings. not just do they transmit rather a lot, but additionally they adapt their very own constructions in order that the buildings will transmit the mechanical lots extra successfully, not like bridges and construction constructions. The buildings of residing tissues are consistently altering because of development and reaction to the tissue surroundings, together with the mechanical atmosphere. the target of this article is to explain the character of the composite parts of a tissue, the mobile tactics that produce those parts, the meeting of the materials right into a hierarchical constitution, and the habit of the tissue’s composite constitution within the variation to its mechanical setting. A tissue’s mechanical setting is the heritage of mechanical loading skilled via the tissue in a few reference period of time, like an afternoon.

The most crucial gains of the textbook are its center point, neither too complex nor too effortless, its clean point of view on older fabric concerns, and the inclusion of latest examine effects conscientiously crafted onto this intermediate base of mechanics.


Key Features:

  • An introductory bankruptcy at the constitution of tissues and the attention-grabbing unresolved difficulties referring to how organic tissues are shaped and constructed.
  • Detailed illustrations and integrated (with book/author watermark) on CD for educational / educational use
  • Example difficulties to supply the coed with hands-on adventure with concepts
  • Extensive appendices and educational fabrics on new advancements together with multiplied therapy of ceramic fabrics and implants
  • Detailed references for additional reading
  • Solutions guide on CD for Bona Fide teachers (separate entity; most sensible mystery revenues code)
  • As in TM, 1E an internet site ( that has been tested to supply supplemental fabric for the booklet. in this web site is published downloadable extra chapters on particular tissues, downloadable PowerPoint displays of all of the book's chapters, corrections to the broadcast quantity and extra workouts and examples for the present chapters.
