"Identifying the Mechanical Properties of Biological Materials"

6th November, 2008 at ARUP Campus

Blythe Valley Park

Solihull, UK

Hosted by ARUP

and Meditech

Arup and Meditech are pleased to announce details of the above meeting which is to be held at the Arup Campus, Solihull. The meeting will consist of invited speakers who will explore new developments taking place in identifying parameters and materials properties required for a better understanding of the behaviour and quantitative response of biological tissues. Here soft tissues/organs/skin, bone structures, ligaments/tendons/joints, biofluids, fluid/structure interaction, CFD models and validation techniques are suggestions for inclusion. The aim here is to focus on both existing and new scientific techniques (lab and simulation based) which can be used to identify the properties of biological tissue such that these can subsequently be used to provide more accurate results in analysing and simulating tissue structure response.

Invited Speakers;

Sam Evans (Cardiff Uni), Eduardo de Neto (Swansea Uni), Djenane Pamplona (Brazil), Hazel Screen (QM Uni London), Penny Probert Smith (Oxford Uni), Brian Walker (Arup)

We would also be pleased to consider contributed presentations, posters or displays within this area of interest (oral presentations will be 20 minutes). The costs of the meeting will be 75 and will include coffee breaks, lunch and conference packs. Numbers are restricted to 80 people and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. If you wish to contribute a paper or provide a poster or display please contact Rumana at or see information .

Also note that exhibition space for companies, publishers and software houses is free of charge however the meeting fee for each person attending will apply.
