Prof. Dr. Böl - Aspects of Active Muscle Modeling

Institute of Solid Mechanics
Braunschweig University of Technology

Abstract

This course will present an insight into active muscle tissue modelling. In more detail, we focus on the numerical modelling of skeletal as well as smooth muscles. The lecture is tripartite: First the basics of muscle contraction will be presented. In a second step associated three-dimensional multi-scale/field models are introduced. The lecture ends with the presentation of advanced experimental methods used to validate the aforementioned modelling concepts.
