Example text

Of great interest to biomechanists are the mechanical properties of these tissues. Generally, when analyzing the mechanical properties of such structures, we discern the external forces that are applied to the structure and relate them to the resulting deformation of the structure. The ability of a structure to resist deformation depends on its material organization and overall shape. Therefore, this type of analysis is important because it provides information on the mechanical properties of the structure that may ultimately influence its function.
