  1. 6. On the mechanics of actin and intermediate filament networks and their contribution to cellular mechanics

    Author : Björn Fallqvist; Kroon Martin; Peter McHugh; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; actin; cell; mechanical; constitutive; intermediate; continuum; constitutive; Solid Mechanics; Hållfasthetslära;

    Abstract : The mechanical behaviour of cells is essential in ensuring continued physiological function, and deficiencies therein can result in a variety of diseases. Also, altered mechanical response of cells can in certain cases be an indicator of a diseased state, and even actively promoting progression of pathology. READ MORE

    Abstract : Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is characterized by a bulge in the abdominal aorta. AAA development is mostly asymptomatic, but such a bulge may suddenly rupture, which is associated with a high mortality rate. Unfortunately, there is no medication that can prevent AAA from expanding or rupturing. READ MORE

  3. 8. Fracture and Delamination in Packaging Materials : A Study of Experimental Methods and Simulation Techniques

    Author : Md Shafiqul Islam; Sharon Kao-Walter; Christian Johansson Askling; Martin Kroon; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; packaging materials and laminates; shear test specimen; essential work of fracture; finite element simulation; optimization; tearing; peel; polymers; cohesive zone modelling;

    Abstract : Packages are the means of preservation, distribution and convenience of use for food, medicine and other consumer products. The introduction of a new package-opening technique for a better opening experience requires additional prototype development and physical testing. READ MORE

  5. 10. On the continuum muscle modeling

    Author : Babak Sharifimajd; Jonas Stalhand; Anders Klarbring; Martin Kroon; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Modeling muscle behavior using techniques developed in continuum mechanics is a growing eld of research. The developed models allow for a more generalized way of computing stresses and deformations, specially, when it comes to using nite element techniques. READ MORE
