    • Influence of initial residual stress on growth and pattern creation for a layered aorta 

      Du, Yangkun; Lü, Chaofeng; Destrade, Michel; Chen, Weiqiu (Nature Research, 2019-06-03)
      Residual stress is ubiquitous and indispensable in most biological and artificial materials, where it sustains and optimizes many biological and functional mechanisms. The theory of volume growth, starting from a stress-free ...
    • Prescribing patterns in growing tubular soft matter by initial residual stress 

      Du, Yangkun; Lü, Chaofeng; Liu, Congshan; Han, Zilong; Li, Jian; Chen, Weiqiu; Qu, Shaoxing; Destrade, Michel (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2019-10-02)
      Initial residual stress is omnipresent in biological tissues and soft matter, and can affect growth-induced pattern selection significantly. Here we demonstrate this effect experimentally by letting soft tubes grow in the ...
