  journal={arXiv: Classical Physics},
In this paper, the growth-induced bending deformation of a thin hyperelastic plate is studied. For a plane-strain problem, the governing PDE system is formulated, which is composed of the mechanical equilibrium equations, the constraint equation and the boundary conditions. By adopting a gradient growth field with the growth value changes linearly along the thickness direction, the exact solution to the governing PDE system can be derived. With the obtained solution, some important features of…

Mechanics of morphological instabilities and surface wrinkling in soft materials: a review
Morphological instabilities and surface wrinkling of soft materials such as gels and biological tissues are of growing interest to a number of academic disciplines including soft lithography,
Localized growth of layered tissues
Due to their structural heterogeneity, stratified media usually loose their initial symmetry when they grow. Mismatching expansions between distinct layers create elastic stresses that lead to the

The purpose of this paper is to review a few of the many achievements in the biomechanics of soft tissues and the tools that allowed them, but, more importantly, to identify some of the open problems that merit increased attention from those in applied mechanics, biomechanic, mathematics and mechanobiology.
