Force transmission by nonlinear biomaterials

We are very pleased to announce the Soft Matter special collection on Force transmission by nonlinear biomaterials.


This collection focuses on a wide variety of non-linear mechanical phenomena in biological contexts and how they arise from the underlying fibrous structure of different biomaterials. The Guest Editors for this collection are:

  • Professor Yair Shokef (Tel Aviv University, Israel)
  • Professor Xiaoming Mao (University of Michigan, USA)


All of the articles are FREE to access until 24 January 2022


Read the following selection of articles from the collection:
