Micro-sphere Model

Hi all,

I am currently working on micro-sphere model like the one used by Miehe, Ihlemann and Pawleski. I wonder if someone know a FEM code who use this type of model.

Thanks a lot

FSI Analysis to Understand Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

1. We present an interesting application of ADINA FSI in the study of carpal tunnel syndrome. The analyses involve large deformations and contact of multiple flexible bodies which are immersed in a fluid:

Which program? ABAQUS, Comsol or Ansys

Hi all,

I am a PhD student at the first months. I have to choose a finite element software to study impact effect on biological soft tissues. After some web researches the softwares which seem to be more suitable are ABAQUS, Comsol Multiphisics and Ansys.
My intention is to develop an user defined material model considering the material as anisotropic porous-visco-elastic.
I would appreciate some suggestions/opinion. I am specially interested in dynamical simulations.

Rac activation by stress does not depend on Src

It is known that platelet derived growth factor (PDGF) induced Rac activation depends on Src activity. However, we find that a local stress of physiologic magnitude via integrins can directly activate Rac GTPase rapidly, independent of the Src activity. Our finding on the stress-induced rapid Rac activation challenges the conventional wisdom on mechanotransduction and suggests that stress-induced signaling via focal adhesions does not follow signal transduction pathways induced by growth factors.

Endowed Professorships and Faculty positions in Health

Michigan Technological University invites applicants for new tenure-track positions at any rank in the broad areas of health sciences and engineering. This campus-wide Strategic Faculty Hiring Initiative (SFHI) is projected to bring up to ten new faculty members, including possible endowed positions, to campus over the next two years to strengthen the key focus areas of biochemistry, bioengineering, bioethics, biomaterials, biomechanics, human factors, medical informatics, cell biology, physiology, and statistical genetics.

Wondering about the Mechanics of Bacterial Death

0. I was idly thinking about the current H1N1 flue pandemic, and the following things occurred to me. Please note, I know very little about this subject matter. So, please consider descriptions in the following as, at best, tentative.

1. There is a basic difference between how alcohol kills viruses and how salt-water kills bacteria. [Alcohol is used in the hand-cleaners they use in hospitals. Girgling with salt-water is the first line of defense (and an unexpectedly highly effective one) which is well known for millenia.]

But the mechanisms involved are different.

Chair and Lectureship in BioEngineering at Durham University, UK

Colleagues

Can I draw your attention to a Chair position and Lectureship in Bioengineering at the School of Engineering, Durham University. While the curent Chair position is occupied by an experimentalist, the postitions are open to candidates with interests in computational modelling and I would encourage anyone in that area to take a look.

Further details are available at the Durham jobs website https://jobs.dur.ac.uk/default.asp. Closing dates are 10/07/09 for the Chair and 31/07/09 for the Lectureship.

Teeth implant Finite Element Analysis

I am looking for a Finite Element software for Teeth and Implant modeling and analysis. Is there a special FE software for this, or which of these softwares can solve the proplem.

Abaqus, ProEng, Ansys, catia, solidworks, or anyother software..

please, if you know about solving this problem, share your thoughts with me.. or send me a link to this kind of analysis...

thanks to all in advance...

Journal Club Theme of January 2009: Impetus for Cell Mechanics

Free Tags: 

Welcome to the January 2009 issue. This issue addresses the important discussion on cell mechanics. Acute need to study cell mechanics is driven by the fundamental goal of tissue engineering i.e. to make tissue engineered constructs that can mimic the environment for tissue regeneration with a potential to replace the biological functions of damaged organs. There is now worldwide activity in the in vitro regeneration of tissues including nerve, liver, bone, heart valves, blood vessels, and kidney.

UK Newton Post-Doc Fellowship in Computational Mechanics

 
Dear All,

A new multi-million pound initiative to fund research collaborations and improve links between UK and overseas researchers has been launched.

The Newton International Fellowships aim to attract the most promising, early stage, post-doctoral researchers working overseas, who do not hold UK citizenship, in the fields of humanities, engineering, natural
and social sciences.
