Computational Biomechanics Advanced Models and Methods

Meetings and events

Mechanics plays a dominant role in many biological systems and biomedical scenarios.
Because of the complexity of those systems, often advanced models and computational methods are mandatory to provide essential insight and unravel complex situations. This advanced webinar will cover a broad range of highly up-to-date topics in computational Biomechanics, where each individual topic is presented by an international leading scientist in the respective field.
