Mechanical Characterisation of biological tissues 27349
Mechanical Characterisation of biological tissues
Approved 1
Indentation is a powerful technique that has been widely used for material characterisation of various materials. In this talk, Dr Mehran Moazen, University College London, will give some examples of how this technique has enabled us to unravel the mechanical properties of various biological tissues (bones and joints). This has subsequently advanced our fundamental understanding of how biological tissues grow and develop in a developmental and evolutionary context at the macro scale.  

In this webinar organised by Surface Ventures, Dr Moazen will:
  • Give a brief overview of nanoindentation and challenges with the indentation of biological tissues.
  • Give an example of an application of this technique to characterise changes in material properties during the development of the craniofacial system.
  • Give an example of the application of this technique to understand the evolution of rather unknown biomineralization in reptiles.
  • Give an example as to the application of this technique in the design and development of biomedical devices.
