About this Research Topic
Computational biomechanics is an emerging research field that has entered an exciting era of exploration where mechanical forces are the key connection and the most important common denominator of biomechanical/biomedical applications. This knowledge feeds into novel methods for experimental and computational biomechanical analysis covering the mechanics of nano biostructures to micromechanics of cells.
The goal of the current topic is to collect the latest research and cutting-edge techniques used in computational biomechanics, include but are not limited to simulation, design, material, mathematical modeling, numerical analysis, and experimental verification of mechanical properties and behavior of biomechanical systems from the nanoscale component of living systems to macroscale artificial organs.
The primary focus of this topic is the investigation of mechanical properties, behavior, and application of biological/biomedical systems, materials, and devices based on both experimental and theoretical approaches. Reports of fundamental scientific investigations from nano to macroscale are welcome, as are articles concerned with the following relevant subjects:
· Biomechanic analyses of the biological systems including molecules such as proteins, DNA, and other biomolecules, biological membranes, and all living cells.
· Mechanical properties of biocompatible materials including composites, nanocomposites, natural materials with a specific application in biomedicine.
· Computing and experimental techniques for the measurement of mechanical properties in biomedical materials.
· Mechanobiology and investigating of the relationship of physical/mechanical stimuli of the environment to organs, cells and subcellular structures at any length- and time-scales.
