Modeling Prophylactic Sacral Dressings with Tel Aviv University

The sacrum is the most susceptible anatomical site for developing pressure injuries (PIs), including deep tissue injuries, during supine lying. Prophylactic dressings are generally designed to reduce friction, alleviate internal tissue shear loads, manage the microclimate, and overall cushion the soft tissues subjected to sustained deformations under the sacrum.

2. physics-informed neural networks, multi-fidelity Gaussian processes,
3. deep material networks and multiscale material failure analysis.
Some benchmarks on nano-polymer composites, polymer matrix composites, additive manufactured alloys will be demonstrated. For more details, please visit the website,

15 Minutes Webinar - Improve High-Value Part Inspection and Simulation-based NDE with Simpleware Software

Wed, Jun 12, 2019 4:00 PM - 4:15 PM BST

Join this webinar to learn how Simpleware software enables dynamic inspection and non-destructive evaluation of high-value parts.

The webinar will cover workflows from industrial CT data to models, from quantitative analysis to dimensional measurement, surface deviation, and use of Surface/CAD geometries. Learn how Simpleware software’s unique features enable comprehensive processing of industrial data and export of robust meshes to simulation to study how manufactured components perform against design requirements.

'Sideways' and stable crack propagation in a silicone elastomer

We have discovered a peculiar form of fracture that occurs in a highly stretchable silicone elastomer (Smooth-On Ecoflex 00–30). Under certain conditions, cracks propagate in a direction perpendicular to the initial pre-cut and in the direction of the applied load. In other words, the crack deviates from the standard trajectory and instead propagates perpendicular to that trajectory. The crack arrests stably, and thus the material ahead of the crack front continues to sustain load, thereby enabling enormous stretchabilities. We call this phenomenon 'sideways' and stable cracking.

Webinar on Simpleware-CCNY Head Model: June 5th, 2019

Wed, Jun 5, 2019 4:00 PM - 4:15 PM BST

Join this webinar to learn about the Simpleware-CCNY head model which offers a significant resource for anyone wanting to evaluate product designs and simulate how they interact with the head.

The Simpleware-CCNY head model is a highly detailed representation of the head created in Simpleware software from scan data. The City College of New York (CCNY) is the source of the data, which consists of T1 and T2 weighted scans performed on a Siemens Trio TIM 3.0 Tesla scanner.

problems with piezoelectric actuator example in Matlab

While teaching piezoelectrical materials in my course at the Politecnico di BARI, I have explored the Matlab example "deflection-of-a-piezoelectric-actuator" which can be found in the official matlab web site

The result of the example itself may be correct because it is checked against some reference solution.
