Biomechanics plays a fundamental role in modern science and research. The application of engineering tools in support of traditional medicine has been a success over the last decades. As an example, the advent of noninvasive, high- resolution imaging like ultrasounds or magnetic resonance, together with the growth and the improvement of numerical modeling, filled the gaps of in vivo test difficulties.
The human body is a complex conglomerate made of different sub-systems, each of which with its own peculiarities and challenges from the modeling standpoint. MUL2 has developed multi-fidelity and multi-field models of a human atherosclerotic artery, dental prostheses and fibrous connective tissue (tendon).
