Webinar: 3D Printed Anatomical Models: How Mediprint Leverage Synopsys and Stratasys Technology for Patient-specific Solutions

Wed, Nov 14, 2018 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM GMT

This customer webinar from Mediprint will show the benefits of medical 3D printing, with a particular focus on organs. Mediprint will discuss their use of Synopsys Simpleware™ software to generate robust models ready for 3D printing using Stratasys machines. Insights from the workflow will show the ease and speed by which these models can be created, and the many benefits for clinicians using 3D printed models such as organs.

PhD Position in the BIOMEDICAL Engineering Department (CIMNE/Barcelona)

The objective of the position is to develop a PhD work on the subject “cardiovascular stent design and analysis”. The aim of the work will be to analyze the expansion of the stent and the contact with the artery to simulate thrombectomy technique. The developments will have to be carried out within the Kratos framework.

A Viscoplastic Model Based on a Variable Strain Rate Sensitivity Index for Superplastic Sheet Metals

In recent years, superplastic forming (SPF) technology has been used for producing complex sheet components in automotive and aerospace industries. Under the SPF conditions, i.e. low strain rates and elevated temperatures, a superior elongation is achieved.

Post-doctoral opportunity at U. Pittsburgh on arterial mechanics

We are seeking a post-doctoral fellow to examine the biomechanics of arterial corrugations. Arteries are known to have a strongly-corrugated lumen. This is readily evident from histology images of the internal elastic lamina (IEL), which usually appears as a heavily-wrinkled layer. The overall goal of this research is to elucidate the biomechanics of such arterial corrugations.

Symplectic Analysis of Wrinkles in Elastic Layers with Graded Stiffnesses

Wrinkles in layered neo-Hookean structures were recently formulated as a Hamiltonian system by taking the thickness direction as a pseudo-time variable. This enabled an efficient and accurate numerical method to solve the eigenvalue problem for onset wrinkles. Here, we show that wrinkles in graded elastic layers can also be described as a time-varying Hamiltonian system. The connection between wrinkles and the Hamiltonian system is established through an energy method.

Elaborating the controversy on the contribution of the surface stress in silicon nanowires

A link between the local surface stress at the atomic scale to the overall behavior of the continuum system indicates a twist deformation at the free end of silicon nano-cantilever. The importance of size and crystal orientation is demonstrated (for more details of the project see:

Stochastic continuum model for mycelium-based bio-foam

Mycelium, the root structure of fungi, grows naturally as a biodegradable filamentous material. This unique material has highly heterogeneous microstructure with pronounced spatial variability in density and exhibits strongly non-linear mechanical behavior. In this work we explore the material response in compression, under cyclic deformation, and develop an experimentally-validated multiscale model for its mechanical behavior. The deformation localizes in stochastically distributed sub-domains which eventually percolate to form macroscopic bands of high density material.
