Davis' Law - Soft Tissue Examples
... Bulk mechanical properties, such as modulus, failure strain, and ultimate tensile strength, decrease over long periods of disuse as a result of micro-structural changes on the collagen fiber level ... in the same micro-gravity environment, but modulus strength decrease was still significant ... Additionally, studies show that tendons have a maximum modulus of approximately 800 MPa thus, any additional loading will not result in a significant increase in modulus ...
Lipid Bilayer Mechanics - Bending Modulus
... See also Beam (structure) Bending modulus is defined as the energy required to deform a membrane from its intrinsic curvature to some other curvature ... The bending modulus, compression modulus and bilayer thickness are related by such that if two of these parameters are known the other can be calculated ...
Lamé Parameters
... parameters are the two parameters λ, also called Lamé's first parameter μ, the shear modulus or Lamé's second parameter (also referred to as G) In ... The first parameter λ is related to the bulk modulus and the shear modulus via, and serves to simplify the stiffness matrix in Hooke's law ... Although the shear modulus, μ, must be positive, the Lamé's first parameter, λ, can be negative, in principle however, for most materials it is ...
