We (Daniel Strange and Michelle Oyen) had the privilege to work with Google’s London office to make this video for the Google Science Fair, of which Lego is a supporting partner.
The work is fun but is also “real” science, and the publication on properties of bone-like materials made by the Lego robot is found . . . → Read More: Lego Robot Movie–Making Bone
Post-doctoral researcher Matteo Galli’s work on poroelastic indentation analysis, including nanoindentation analysis, has been published in CMES, Computer Modeling in Engineering and Sciences. The article appears in a special issue of CMES focussing on contact mechanics, and edited by Prof. Selvadurai of McGill University. The paper describes an algorithm for fast analysis of . . . → Read More: Poroelastic Indentation
Michelle and Tammy provided mechanical expertise, in the form of nanoindentation testing and analysis, for a collaboration with the group of Molly Stevens at Imperial College London, Dept. of Materials. The study examined, using a wide variety of characterization techniques, the bone-like material formed by embryonic stem cells, adult stem cells and differentiated osteoblast cells. . . . → Read More: Building bones and testing their properties
Undergraduate researcher (and medic-in-training) Wesley Chua has had a journal paper accepted based on a summer research (UROP) project in our group in 2007. (At the time it was still to become a group, Wesley was the first researcher working in the OyenLab since it’s establishment at Cambridge!) Wesley’s review, “Do we know the . . . → Read More: Congrats to Wesley!
Michelle’s recent article, “Collagen Mechanics: Learning from Nature” can now be found online here. This was published in Cambridge University’s Research . . . → Read More: Collagen Mechanics: Learning from Nature
