This September we celebrate the 100th birthday of Professor Y. C. Fung, the Father of Biomechanics. There are multiple events organized in the biomechanics and biomedical engineering communities in honor of Professor Fung, including the YC Fung symposium at the Summer Biomechanics, Bioengineering and Biotransport Conference (SB3C2019) in Seven Spring, PA in June and the YC Fung symposium at San Diego, CA in September. A special issue has been published by the Journal of Medical Biomechanics [1]. The ASME Journal of Biomechanical Engineering organized this special issue titled “Special Issue: A Tribute to Dr. Y. C Fung,” to celebrate Dr. Fung's birthday and his contributions to science and engineering.

Dr. Fung has been a singular pioneer in the field of Biomechanics, establishing multiple biomechanical theories and paradigms in various organ systems, including the heart, blood vessels, blood cells, and lung [...
