FEBio 1.5 Release

We are excited to announce the arrival of version 1.5 of FEBio (Finite Elements for Biomechanics). This new version can be downloaded at FEBio is an open-source finite element package, specifically designed for solving problems in the field of computational biomechanics. This new version includes some major changes and contains a number of new and exciting features. Some of the noteworthy changes and additions are listed below.

Effect of fiber arrangement on mechanical properties of short fiber reinforced composites

2-D "tension-shear chain" model (Ref.1-3) is well known successfully capturing the basic mechanical features of staggered structures in shell-like biomaterials. Our recent paper appeared in Comp. Sci. Tech. developed a three-dimensional (3D) "tension-shear chain" theoretical model to predict the mechanical properties of unidirectional short fiber reinforced composites, and especially to investigate the distribution effect of short fibers.

Postdoctoral Research Associate at Brown University: Finite Element Simulations of Active Biopolymer Networks

A postdoctoral position with
primary focus on finite element simulations of active biopolymer
networks is available immediately at Shenoy Research Group @ Brown University . We are looking for a strongly
motivated candidate to work on the mechanics of active cytoskeletal
networks. The ideal candidate will have a background in solid
mechanics/computational physics with expertise in finite element simulations. Experience with Monte Carlo methods and stochastic simulations is desired but not essential.  This
individual will have the opportunity to be directly involved in

Journal Club Theme of January 2012: Mechanics of Growth

"I can't understand how people are still working on growth. That stuff's all done." This was the beginning of the first lunch conversation at a recent Banff workshop on Mathematical Foundations on Mechanical Biology... somewhat frustrating for someone who is excited about growth. Fortunately, most of the presentations and discussions still focused on growth. Although "that stuff's all done".

Image-Based Simulation Workshop

WORKSHOP: Image-based Simulation for Biomechanics, Materials Applications, and Reverse Engineering

This workshop is aimed at those interested in 3D reconstruction from radiology images, and in using 3D image data (as obtained from CT, Micro-CT, MRI and Ultrasound) to generate Rapid Prototyping, CAD, and Finite Element models.

Open Junior Faculty Positions in Stanford ME

There are two open junior faculty positions in Stanford’s Mechanical Engineering department.  One is in the area of biomechanical engineering (broadly defined) and the second is theoretical and computational fluid mechanics (broadly defined).

Materialise & Simulia Medical Engineering Seminar

Materialise and Dassault Systemes Simulia Benelux are pleased to announce their co-organized Medical Engineering Seminar which will take place on 4 October 2011, at the Materialise HQ in Leuven, Belgium. The Medical Engineering Seminar is a meeting for and by users and aims to bring together biomechanical engineers currently working, or interested in patient-realistic finite element modeling.

hyperelastic or elastic skin model in Abaqus

Dears,  I am quite new in the area of Abaqus models and biomechanics. My background is related with textiles. However I am a post doc in Belgium at the moment and my new task is to model a fingertip skin section under the influence of contact with different objects.
