This led to the rebirth of bone biomechanics when the railroad engineer Karl Culmann and the anatomist Hermann von Meyer compared the stress patterns in a human femur with those in a similarly shaped crane. Then Julius Wolff heard about their conversation, and Wolff’s Law of bone remodeling was described that has been foundation of orthopedic medicine/mechanics in twentieth century. ” 1977 The American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) was founded in October 1977 by a group of 53 scientists and clinicians.
