    • Poynting effect of brain matter in torsion 

      Balbi, Valentina; Trotta, Antonia; Destrade, Michel; Annaidh, Aisling Ni (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2019-06-13)
      We investigate experimentally and model theoretically the mechanical behaviour of brain matter in torsion. Using a strain-controlled rheometer, we perform torsion tests on fresh porcine brain samples. We quantify the torque ...
    • Rivlin's legacy in continuum mechanics and applied mathematics 

      Destrade, Michel; Murphy, Jeremiah; Saccomandi, Giuseppe (The Royal Society, 2019-03-18)
      Over a long and distinguished career, Ronald Rivlin (figure 1) published more than 200 scientific papers. He was a highly innovative scientist who made seminal contributions in all areas of continuum mechanics. He was one ...
