Stress Heterogeneities in Sheared Type-I Collagen Networks Revealed by Boundary Stress Microscopy

Abstract

Disordered fiber networks provide structural support to a wide range of important materials, and the combination of spatial and dynamic complexity may produce large inhomogeneities in mechanical properties, an effect that is largely unexplored experimentally. In this work, we introduce Boundary Stress Microscopy to quantify the non-uniform surface stresses… (More)
