Engineering Physiology, 5th Edition, (PDF) has the same purpose as the previous prints: to offer physiological information which engineers, supervisors, designers, managers, and other planners need to make equipment and work “fit the human.” Chapters have been reviewed, tables and figures updated. New material discusses, among other subjects, models of the human body that provide practical and design-oriented information, effects of shift work/sleep loss on attitude and performance, biomechanics describing the body’s capabilities and limitations, and new techniques to measure body sizes and the subsequent changes in applications of that information.
The ebook does not substitute standard (biological-medical-chemical) textbooks on human physiology; rather, it provides information on human features and functions which are fundamental to ergonomics or human (factors) engineering, terms frequently used interchangeably. It helps place the foundations for teamwork among engineers and physiologists, physicians, and biologists. Bioengineering topics concern tissues and bones, biochemical processes, neural networks, biosensors, bio- and anthromechanics, perception of information, and related actions, to mention just a small number of areas of common interest.
Such understanding offers the underpinnings for devising work tasks, tools, vehicles, work-rest schedules, workplaces, homes, and designed environments and human-machine systems so that we humans can work and live efficiently, safely, and comfortably.
