Institute of Continuum Mechanics and Biomechanics

The Institute of Continuum Mechanics and Biomechanics (LKM) engages enthusiatic researchers working on a wide range of scientific topics that apply experimental and computational mechanics to tackle various interdisciplinary research questions including mechanics of living tissues, biomaterials, and 3D printing. Through the combination of experiments, continuum mechanics modeling, and simulation, we strive to improve our understanding of the mechanical behavior of biological structures and to find innovative solutions at the interfaces of engineering, medicine and biological sciences.

We had a fantastic time at the GAMM conference 2024 in Magdeburg from March 18-22! It was great catching up with old friends and collaborators, engaging in in-depth discussions during the poster sessions and presentations, and forming new partnerships. Nina Reiter presented her latest paper on "Micr...
