Short abstract and comments

Establishement of the mechanical properties of soft tissues based on imagiology and numerical simulation. The main objective of this project is to establish a set of procedures to obtain the mechanical properties of soft tissues.

Potential uses/indications

These methodologies should be applied to ligaments, tendons and also to muscles, including its passive and active behaviour.
