Poroelastic Modeling of Highly Hydrated Collagen Hydrogels: Experimental Results vs. Numerical Simulation with Custom and Commercial Finite Element Solvers

With the non-stop advances in computational methods and tools, researchers have a wide range of possibilities when it comes to choosing the most appropriate software for their work. In the field of biomechanics and biomaterials, one of the most used tools to predict and understand the behaviour of materials and devices is the finite element method, which allows for the ...

Collaboration with NC3Rs to reduce animal testing

University of Sheffield's researchers are trying to find ways to reduce animal testing in preclinical trials by using computer models and medical imaging. One application of this technology, also known as in silico methods, is to study the effect of skeletal diseases such as osteoporosis and its treatments.Using in silico methods, researchers conducted a longitudinal study o...
