By Arthur T. Johnson

This examine describes human body structure less than the demanding stipulations of workout, giving a brand new viewpoint on body structure. The booklet additionally provides physiological dimension devices in a unified model and treats body structure and engineering research as equivalent companions. It integrates body structure and biology with engineering, introduces quantitative points of body structure, offers physiological types, supplies helpful predictive versions for constructing structures and introduces medical education and predictive types in activities drugs.
