Brief Highlights for 12 of them below
►its ability to accurately and efficiently test a biomimetic material in a non-destructive manner ; ►the set-up with use of a novel test rig adapted for loading and imaging - and tailored to this Lumedica system ; ►the validation and demonstration of the accuracy of the Yang et al.’s derived-Hertz-contact theory model for OCT-based elastography ; ►the bridging of several isolated pieces of research in the biomechanics field ; ►the evidence of an inexpensive and accessible (ease-of use and purchase) OCT/OCE system while achieving great precision and reliability, making it ideal for a wider implementation within healthcare or research facilities worldwide ; ►the technologies used are non-invasive and integrate visible light radiations only ; ►use for the effect of prior long-term recellularization ; ►strengthens a very new field which includes cell cultures applications where there is a need for efficient, accurate and non-destructive test and monitoring ; ►defines the boundaries of the system (max. stiffness, min. deformation measured accurately, protocols requirements, artefacts tolerance threshold, etc.).
Potential applications for OCE include breast cancer detection, monitoring tissue engineered constructs in real time and studying cell mechanobiology

► Fundamental knowledge of the theory of elasticity, including equilibrium equations, compatibility equations, boundary conditions and stress functions.
► Extensive analysis of stresses and strain distributions using stress functions in a number of engineering structures under load. Development of complex equations tailored to the conditions of a specific stress-strain behaviour.
► Assess the suitability of specific viscoelastic models for different materials and different mechanical characterization techniques.
► Computations and examinations on the mechanical behaviour of laminates in different orientations.
► Applications of the finite element method in various settings.
► In-dept problem-solving involving simple situations (thick-walled pressure vessels or holes in plates) and more complex ones.
► Rheological models (shear stress-shear rate behavior of drilling fluids) are developed and used to describe the behaviour of viscoelastic materials.
