    	abstract = "Complexity of scaffold geometries and biological mechanisms involved in the bone generation process make the design of scaffolds a quite challenging task. The most common approaches utilized in bone tissue engineering require costly protocols and time-consuming experiments. In this study we present an algorithm that, combining parametric finite element models of scaffolds with numerical optimization methods and a computational mechano-regulation model, is able to predict the optimal scaffold microstructure. The scaffold geometrical parameters are perturbed until the best geometry that allows the largest amounts of bone to be generated, is reached. We study the effects of the following factors: (1) the shape of the pores; (2) their spatial distribution; (3) the number of pores per unit area. The optimal dimensions of the pores have been determined for different values of scaffold Young’s modulus and compression loading acting on the scaffold upper surface. Pores with rectangular section were predicted to lead to the formation of larger amounts of bone compared to square section pores; similarly, elliptic pores were predicted to allow the generation of greater amounts of bone compared to circular pores. The number of pores per unit area appears to have rather negligible effects on the bone regeneration process. Finally, the algorithm predicts that for increasing loads, increasing values of the scaffold Young’s modulus are preferable. The results shown in the article represent a proof-of-principle demonstration of the possibility to optimize the scaffold microstructure geometry based on mechanobiological criteria",

    	abstract = "Functionally Graded Scaffolds (FGSs) are porous biomaterials where porosity changes in space with a specific gradient. In spite of their wide use in bone tissue engineering, possible models that relate the scaffold gradient to the mechanical and biological requirements for the regeneration of the bony tissue are currently missing. In this study we attempt to bridge the gap by developing a mechanobiology-based optimization algorithm aimed to determine the optimal graded porosity distribution in FGSs. The algorithm combines the parametric finite element model of a FGS, a computational mechano-regulation model and a numerical optimization routine. For assigned boundary and loading conditions, the algorithm builds iteratively different scaffold geometry configurations with different porosity distributions until the best microstructure geometry is reached, i.e. the geometry that allows the amount of bone formation to be maximized. We tested different porosity distribution laws, loading conditions and scaffold Young's modulus values. For each combination of these variables, the explicit equation of the porosity distribution law-i.e the law that describes the pore dimensions in function of the spatial coordinates-was determined that allows the highest amounts of bone to be generated. The results show that the loading conditions affect significantly the optimal porosity distribution. For a pure compression loading, it was found that the pore dimensions are almost constant throughout the entire scaffold and using a FGS allows the formation of amounts of bone slightly larger than those obtainable with a homogeneous porosity scaffold. For a pure shear loading, instead, FGSs allow to significantly increase the bone formation compared to a homogeneous porosity scaffolds. Although experimental data is still necessary to properly relate the mechanical/biological environment to the scaffold microstructure, this model represents an important step towards optimizing geometry of functionally graded scaffolds based on mechanobiological criteria.",

One important example is the mechanics of heart functions. Comparing normal deformation patterns of the cardiac cycle in healthy and diseased individuals can be a diagnostic tool that provides early and accurate indications of the onset of heart diseases. The tagging technique is an experimental mechanics method that makes it possible to utilize the extensive literature existing on the analysis of deformations utilizing the digital moire´ method for accurate and fast quantification of the heart 3-D kinematics. MRI tagging is an imaging technique used in medicine to visualize the structures of tissues of the human body in detail. MRI uses of the phenomenon of nuclear magnetic resonance to image tissues by exciting the nuclei of atoms in the tissue. Because of the different chemical composition of the tissues it can provide details that cannot be visible with CT Scans. By modulating magnetization it is possible to inscribe lattice-patterns in the tissue volume. These lattices are fixed to the under laying tissues for periods of time long enough to follow a cardiac cycle. The objective of this paper is to outline image processing techniques that can be utilized to decode the displacements and strains taking into consideration that one is dealing with large 3-D deformations that form a time sequence of images. These techniques are based on fundamental principles that have been developed in the field of digital moire´",

This thick matrix consists of different types of glycoprotein, which have different roles in fertilization. Nowadays several techniques are developed and refined to establish the ZP mechanical response. The assumption at the basis of these methods is that the ZP behaves like an elastic body, dissipative forces are neglected, and thus the Young modulus value remains unaffected by probe dynamics. On the contrary dissipative force are strongly regulated by the slippage of ZP chains past one another whereas the absolute reaction force value is mainly due to the architecture of the ZP structure (number of cross-links and distances between knots). Elastic deflection is then due to the ability of each chain to stretch, whereas viscous flow is caused by the sliding of the molecules over one another. Therefore viscous reaction forces generated by the ZP have to be considered one of the main player in regulating the sperm transit but their peculiar behavior along the ZP structure is still poorly understood. In this context, for the first time, we developed and verified a visco-hyperelastic model able to reproduce the ZP reaction force stressed at different probe rate",

    	abstract = "The umbilical cord is a peculiar and complex structure, about 50–60 cm in length and 1–2 cm in diameter, that is essentially composed of three vessels, i.e. the umbilical vein and two umbilical arteries, arranged in coils around the vein surrounded by a great amount of support tissue, the Wharton’s Jelly (WJ) that binds and encases the umbilical vessels. WJ is a mucoid connective tissue (5 % cells, 95 % extracellular matrix) described as a three-dimensional spongy network of interlacing collagen fibers and small woven bundles of glycoprotein microfibrils with an interdispersed soluble phase composed by hydrophylic hyaluronans and proteoglycans. WJ grants the protection of the umbilical vessels against compressive forces due to fetal movements and uterine contractions and is very important to guarantee venous and arterial umbilical blood flows. WJ response to mechanical loading is not well understood; another unsolved problem concerns WJ putative contribution to store and release the energy of the cardiac cycle, therefore in maintaining the anterograde flow in the cord arteries. This article presents a preliminary study on the mechanical behavior of umbilical cord. For that purpose, an optical set up based on intrinsic moire´ will be developed. Slices cut in the transverse directions of the cord will be submitted to equibiaxial tests and specimen deformations will be monitored in real time with moire´ by printing a grating on the cord slice. In this way, it will be possible to gather information on the mechanical anisotropy of the cord",

Profilometric analyses were carried out on the samples' surface, the measured roughness values were submitted to statistical analysis. A complete factorial plan was drawn up and two-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was carried out to investigate whether the following factors affect the values of roughness: (i) material; (ii) polishing/finishing procedure. Tukey post-hoc test was also conducted to evaluate any statistically significant differences between the material/procedure combinations. The results show that the tested materials do not affect the resulting surface quality but roughness values depend on the finishing/polishing procedure adopted. The procedures that involve: (a) the finishing with medium Sof-Lex discs and (b) the finishing with two tungsten carbide multi-blade milling cutters Q series and UF series are those that allow the lowest values of roughness to be obtained.",

Although the structural response of polymeric networks that form soft matter depends on viscous effects caused by the relative slippage of polymeric chains, the usual assumption made in the AFM-based characterization is that the specimen behaves as a purely elastic material and viscous forces are negligible. However, for each geometric configuration of the AFM tip, there will be a limit indentation rate above which viscous effects must be taken into account to correctly determine mechanical properties. A parametric finite element study conducted on 12 geometric configurations of a blunt cone AFM tip (overall, the study included about 200 finite element analyses) allowed us to determine the limit indentation rate for each configuration. The selected tip dimensions cover commercially available products and account for changes in tip geometry caused by serial measurements. Nanoindentation rates cover typical experimental conditions set in AFM bio-measurements on soft matter. Viscous effects appear to be more significant in the case of sharper tips. This implies that, if quantitative data on sample viscosity are not available, using a rounded indenter and carrying out experiments below the limit indentation rate will allow errors in the determination of mechanical properties to be minimized.",

Visco-hyperelastic parameters of porcine ZP membranes are determined by means of a hybrid characterization framework combining atomic force microscopy nanoindentation measurements, nonlinear finite-element analysis and nonlinear optimization. Remarkably, it is possible to separate the contributions of hyperelastic and viscous terms to ZP mechanical response and evaluate the error made in the determination of ZP mechanical properties if viscous effects were not considered.",

Experimental measurements were carried on 80 specimens consisting of a cylinder of acrylic resin into which a single tooth is inserted. An ad hoc metallic frame was realized to measure the shear bond strength at the tooth-base interface. A complete factorial plan was designed and a three-way ANalysis Of VAriance (ANOVA) was carried out to investigate if shear bond strength is affected by the following factors: (i) tooth material (ceramic or resin); (ii) base material (self-curing or thermal-curing resin); (iii) presence or absence of aluminium oxide sandblasting treatment at the tooth-base interface. Tukey post hoc test was also conducted to evaluate any statistically significant difference between shear strength values measured for the differently prepared samples. It was found from ANOVA that the above mentioned factors all affect shear strength. Furthermore, post hoc analysis indicated that there are statistically significant differences (p-value=0.000) between measured shear strength values for: (i) teeth made of ceramic material vs. teeth made of acrylic resin material; (ii) bases made of self-curing resin vs. thermalcuring resin; (iii) specimens treated with aluminium oxide sandblasting vs. untreated specimens. Shear strength values measured for acrylic resin teeth were on average 70% higher than those measured for ceramic teeth. The shear bond strength was maximized by preparing samples with thermal-curing resin bases and resin teeth submitted to aluminium oxide sandblasting.",
