During his career he published more than 120 original research papers in prestigious journals such as Science, Journal of Applied Physiology, Journal of E ­ xperimental Psychology, and Research Quarterly and supervised more than 80 research postgraduate students who, in turn, went on to contribute substantially to original knowledge in a number of the subdisciplines of human movement studies.

In this regard, his early training in electronics was advantageous.

Mechanical Properties Provided by Components of Bone It has been argued that both stiffness and flexibility are important properties of bone. In a car the axles must be stiff to resist deformation as they transfer the forces from the engine to the wheels, but springs in the suspension deform while the shock absorbers dampen the motion. Engineers can use different materials to suit particular purposes; they choose steel, aluminum, plastic, or other alternatives depending on the purpose of the part.
