BMC Mechanical Engineering has now closed, and we are no longer receiving submissions. Please consider submitting to SN Applied Sciences
This thematic series aims to disseminate the latest design, manufacturing and associated energy systems research related to sustainability, such as the reduction of materials and energy use, the life cycle assessment, the circular economy relating to mechanical engineering, product, industrial design and more!
About the Chair
Dr. Herzog did his undergraduate training in Physical Education at the Federal Technical Institute in Zurich, Switzerland (1979), completed his doctoral research in Biomechanics at the University of Iowa (USA) . Currently, Dr. Herzog is a Professor of Biomechanics at the University of Calgary. His research interests are in musculoskeletal biomechanics with emphasis on mechanisms of muscle contraction focusing on the role of the structural protein titin, and the biomechanics of joints focusing on mechanisms of onset and progression of osteoarthritis.
