    Important to both biomaterials and biomechanical engineers are the philosophical and conceptual developments needed to standardize the mechanical test methods of biomaterials and tissue materials. This publication presents these issues within the context of: a review of test methods; an identification of new testing techniques; and the promotion of an interchange between manufacturers, basic scientists and clinicians. 24 peer-reviewed papers.
