    • A multi-scale theoretical model for soft materials 

      Marti Gallego, Enric (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-09-27)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Many manufactured materials, such as rubbers, are made of several constituents with very different mechanical stiffness. Interestingly, the overall mechanical response of the material exhibits a very particular response ...
    • Computational model for the chemo-mechanical mechanism in wound healing 

      Roldán, Lisandro Agustín (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-06-16)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Wounds in multicellular tissue occur regularly through the lifetime of living organisms, and the closure of these gaps is fundamental for their healthy development. From the physiological point of view, the success in ...
    • Computational modeling of brain development 

      Darlami, Kamal (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-06-13)
      Master thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Covenantee:   Centre Internacional de Mètodes Numèrics a l'Enginyeria
      The brain is one of the most exciting and unknown entities in nature. During development the brain folds towards a highly convoluted form. The topological features of the brain are also related to the deformation of the ...
    • Computational modelling of the actin flow 

      Loosveldt Tomàs, Saskia (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-06)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Actin turnover plays a fundamental role in cell motility, cancer or embryogenesis. The actin flow acts as an engine for the affective motion of motile cells by means of protrusive and retractile mechanisms conditioned also ...
    • Computational models of mammalian brains in transient dynamics 

      Duñó Nosas, Carles (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-05-11)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      To date, the brain remains the most intriguing and unexplored organ in humans. Understanding its mechanical behavior is crucial for the study of brain diseases involving brain deformation in traumatic brain injury. Despite ...
    • Estudio computacional de las propiedades visco-hiperelásticas del tejido cerebral 

      Pérez Berral, Carlos (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-09-22)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Las propiedades mecánicas del tejido cerebral son motivo de estudio desde hace más de medio siglo. La mecánica del cerebro tiene un papel importante en las condiciones patológicas como las lesiones cerebrales, la ...
    • Mathematical modelling of tumour growth in vitro 

      Ouzeri, Adam Amine (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-07)
      Master thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      It is now widely accepted that cells are mechanically integrated structures which dynamically respond to mechanical cues. Tumours are no exception to that rule but still little is known on how this mechano-transduction is ...
    • Numerical model of cardiac electromechanics 

      Wieczorek I Masdeu, Nora (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-10)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      In this project, we develop a Finite Element Method (FEM) formulation that solves the cardiac electrophysiological problem of a three dimensional piece of tissue. This problem is modeled by an electromechanical model that ...
    • Numerical modelling of the electrophysiology of the neuron 

      Lang, Victoria Ashley (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-07)
      Master thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      A majority of studies on the brain are focused at either the molecular level or organ level. Rarely do we see models that attempt to relate neuronal behaviors to symptoms of traumatic brain injury. Well-documented studies ...
