    Mathematical Model for Skeletal Muscle to Simulate the Concentric and Eccentric Contraction

    Chetan Kuthe, R. V. Uddanwadiker, P. M. Padole, A. A. Ramteke§

    Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics, Vol.12, No.1, pp. 1-16, 2015, DOI:10.3970/mcb.2015.012.001

    Abstract Skeletal muscles are responsible for the relative motion of the bones at the joints and provide the required strength. They exhibit highly nonlinear mechanical behaviour and are described by nonlinear hyperelastic constitutive relations. It is distinct from other biological soft tissue. Its hyperelastic or viscoelastic behaviour is modelled by using CE, SEE, and PEE. Contractile element simulates the behaviour of skeletal muscle when it is subjected to eccentric and concentric contraction. This research aims to estimate the stress induced in skeletal muscle in eccentric and concentric contraction with respect to the predefined strain. With the… More >

    Fluid Structure Modelling of Blood Flow in Vessels

    M. Moatamedi, M. Souli, E. Al-Bahkali

    Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics, Vol.11, No.4, pp. 221-234, 2014, DOI:10.3970/mcb.2014.011.221

    Abstract This paper describes the capabilities of fluid structure interaction based multi-physics numerical modelling in solving problems related to vascular biomechanics. In this research work, the onset of a pressure pulse was simulated at the entrance of a three dimensional straight segment of the blood vessel like circular tube and the resulting dynamic response in the form of a propagating pulse wave through the wall was analysed and compared. Good agreement was found between the numerical results and the theoretical description of an idealized artery. Work has also been done on implementing the material constitutive models More >
