Research on Digital volume correlation (DVC)

Strain uncertainties from two digital volume correlation approaches in prophylactically augmented vertebrae A newly developed technique called digital volume correlation (DVC) can be used to access the internal deformation of heterogeneous materials and structures. DVC has been exploited over the past decade to measure complex deformation fields within biological tissues, suc...

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 ...
