A micropolar theory of finite deformation and finite rotation multiplicative elastoplasticity
The aim of this work is to formulate a geometrically exact theory of finite deformation and finite rotation micropolar elastoplasticity to obtain a generalized nonlinear continuum framework. To thisExpand

Mechanical properties of gray and white matter brain tissue by indentation.
The mammalian brain is composed of an outer layer of gray matter, consisting of cell bodies, dendrites, and unmyelinated axons, and an inner core of white matter, consisting primarily of myelinatedExpand

Mechanical characterization of human brain tissue.
Mechanics are increasingly recognized to play an important role in modulating brain form and function. Computational simulations are a powerful tool to predict the mechanical behavior of the humanExpand

Computational Modelling of Isotropic Multiplicative Growth
The changing mass of biomaterials can either be modelled at the constitutive level or at the kinematic level. This contribution attends on the description of growth at the kinematic level. TheExpand

Theory and numerics of geometrically non-linear open system mechanics
The present contribution aims at deriving a general theoretical and numerical framework for open system thermodynamics. The balance equations for open systems differ from the classical balanceExpand

Conservation properties of a time FE method—part II: Time-stepping schemes for non-linear elastodynamics
In the present paper one-step implicit integration algorithms for non-linear elastodynamics are developed. The discretization process rests on Galerkin methods in space and time. In particular, theExpand

Frame‐indifferent beam finite elements based upon the geometrically exact beam theory
This paper describes a new beam finite element formulation based upon the geometrically exact beam theory. In contrast to many previously proposed beam finite element formulations the presentExpand

Inherently Energy Conserving Time Finite Elements for Classical Mechanics
In this paper, we develop a finite element method for the temporal discretization of the equations of motion. The continuous Galerkin method is based upon a weighted-residual statement of Hamilton'sExpand

Hyperelastic models for rubber-like materials: consistent tangent operators and suitability for Treloar’s data
Rubber-like materials consist of chain-like macromolecules that are more or less closely connected to each other via entanglements or cross-links. As an idealisation, this particular structure can beExpand
