I have just joined this mail group because I would like to start research
on this area. (I have been a researcher of actuators and sensors.)

I am interested in the contact problem between skin and object. For example,
contact between finger skin and flat surface. I am also interested in the
dynamic deformation of the skin near cutaneous receptors.
I'd like to know if there are some good references on research being
performed in this area. Especially, I'd like to know if there are research
on human skin by using Finite element analysis.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
