Insigneo in partnership with three leading Scottish universities : SofTMech, a centre for multiscale soft tissue mechanics

SofTMech is a Centre for multiscale soft tissue mechanics funded by EPSRC under its Mathematical Sciences in healthcare programme. The centre is led by the University of Glasgow in partnership with University of St Andrews, Heriot Watt University and The University of Sheffield. SoftMech will accelerate the development of multiscale soft-tissue modelling by constructing a ge...

Modelathon Update – Don’t Forget to Register

The MultiSim Modelathon is drawing ever closer and if you haven’t registered yet, now is the time. The MultiSim Modelathon is based on the concept of hackathon events where different teams work on a challenging problem to ‘hack’ a computer code. Here there is no ‘hacking’ but ‘modelling’. Instead the teams will compete to solve a challenging multiscale biomechanical problem ...

Focus of our Research

The two central ideas that the Frontier Engineering multi-scale project focus on are: a)      The development of a novel multi-scale model of the musculoskeletal system that describes the mechanobiological processes from the whole body (neuromuscular control and body dynamics) down to the cellular level (bone remodelling and mechanosensing); b)      The creation of a mult...

Our vision

The vision of the MultiSim programme is to develop a modelling framework focused on the human musculoskeletal system but designed as a generic platform to address other engineering challenges that involve multi-scale modelling, unobservable states and variables, and uncertainty. This project aims to create a new generation of predictive models capable of handling complex mul...
