This paper discusses the application of mechanical engineering concepts to the field of erectile dysfunction. These concepts include the use of mathematical modelling to predict the amount of venous leakage as a cause of impotence; the role of tissue mechanical properties, especially elasticity (cavernosal expandibility and tunical distensibility) in the maintenance of normal erectile function and the contribution of penile geometry (penile aspect ratio) to the development of impotence
