Non-linear modeling of active biohybrid materials

  title={Non-linear modeling of active biohybrid materials},
  author={C. Paetsch and A. Luis Dorfmann},
Recent advances in engineered muscle tissue attached to a synthetic substrate motivates the development of appropriate constitutive and numerical models. Applications of active materials can be expanded by using robust, non-mammalian muscle cells, such as those of Manduca sexta. In this study, we propose a model to assist in the analysis of biohybrid constructs by generalizing a recently proposed constitutive law for Manduca muscle tissue. The continuum model accounts (i) for the stimulation of… CONTINUE READING
