Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceedingpeer-review


In this contribution, we apply the framework of orientation
distribution functions (odf) to the modelling of adapting anisotropic biological tissues. Remodelling phenomena are thereby incorporated by means of an evolution equation for a generalised structural tensor so that the underlying odf evolves according to the local loading conditions.
