Workshop - Experimental Mechanics in Biological Tissues
Chair: Prof Fabrice Pierron, University of Southampton
Research in the area of biological materials and tissues is growing fast. For instance the characterization and modelling of hard and soft tissues to obtain realistic models of the human body to include in crash simulations or the use of in-vivo material properties for early disease diagnosis (such as cancer). A key issue here concerns the experimental tools that are available to tackle these very complex problems.
The objective of this meeting was to share and discuss some of the latest developments in advanced experimental mechanics techniques applied to biological material . Particular emphasis was placed on the use of imaging techniques and inverse problem solving.
