Experimental and FE simulations of human bones.
Application of FE methods for the analysis of bone strength in Clinical Practice
Patient-Specific FE-models constructed from CT-scans and validated by experimental observations.
Fracture risk laws are sought.
p-FE for biomechanics of arteries:
Incorporating hyperelastic constitutive models, active response, blood-wall interaction.
Incorporating hyperelastic constitutive models (passive and active response) of human arteries in the framework of p-FEMs.
Performing experiments on human arteries in active state.
The following pictures show our experimental equipment and a high-order FE analysis including active response.
Generalized fracture mechanics.
Numerical, analytical and experimental research on generalized failure
criterion in 3-D mechanical components (funded project ).
Pictures show a 3P bending experiment and the FE of a V-notched specimen.
