Multiscale and Multiphysics Modeling of Pressure Driven Ischemia and Ulcer Formation in the Skin
thesisposted on 10.06.2019 by Vivek Dharmangadan Sree
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
Pressure ulcers (PU) are localized damage to skin and underlying tissue that forms in response to ischemia and subsequent hypoxia from external applied mechanical loads such as pressure. We demonstrate how a multiscale and multiphysics finite element model can capture the process of pressure ulcer formation.
