Growth-induced pattern formations in curved film-substrate structures have attracted extensive attention recently. In most existing literature, the growth tensor is assumed to be homogeneous or piecewise homogeneous. In this paper, we aim at clarifying the influence of a growth gradient on pattern formation and pattern evolution in bilayered tubular tissues under plane-strain deformation. In the framework of finite elasticity, a bifurcation condition is derived for a general material model and… Expand


An Asymptotic Analysis of the Period-Doubling Secondary Bifurcation in a Film/Substrate Bilayer
The predicted critical strain based on a four-term expansion shows good agreement with that obtained using fully numerical simulations, and it is demonstrated that four is the minimum number of terms that should be included in order to give realistic predications. Expand
Pattern selection in growing tubular tissues.
The results suggest that physical forces act as regulators during organogenesis and give rise to the characteristic circular folds in the esophagus, the longitudinal fold in the valves of Kerckring, the surface networks in villi, and the crypts in the large intestine. Expand
The Geometry of Incompatibility in Growing Soft Tissues: Theory and Numerical Characterization.
This work defines the geometric features that characterize incompatibility in biological materials and introduces the geometric incompatibility tensor for different growth types, showing that the constraints associated with growth lead to specific patterns of the incompatibility metrics. Expand
Mechanics of human brain organoids.
A mathematical model is proposed to elucidate the role played by two mechanisms which have been experimentally proven to be crucial in shaping human brain organoids: the contraction of the inner core of the organoid and the microstructural remodeling of its outer cortex. Expand
Multiscale integration of environmental stimuli in plant tropism produces complex behaviors
A multiscale theory of tropism is proposed that takes multiple stimuli and transforms them into auxin transport that drives tissue-level growth and remodeling, thus modifying the plant shape and position with respect to the stimuli. Expand
Multiscale integration of environmental stimuli in plant tropism produces complex behaviors.
This work model this multiscale process in filamentary organs for an arbitrary stimulus by explicitly linking hormone transport to local tissue deformation leading to the generation of mechanical forces and the deformation of the organ in three dimensions. Expand
Nonuniform growth and surface friction determine bacterial biofilm morphology on soft substrates
A model that considers diffusion of nutrients and their uptake by bacteria, bacterial growth/biofilm matrix production, mechanical deformation of both the biofilm and the substrate, and the friction between them establishes that nonuniform growth and friction are fundamental determinants of stress anisotropy and hence biofilm morphology.

Surface instabilities in graded tubular tissues induced by volumetric growth
Abstract Growth-induced pattern formation in tubular tissues is intimately correlated to normal physiological functions. Moreover, either the microstructure or certain diseases can give rise toExpand
