Rheology – Study of the flow of matter

* hemorheology
    – optimal hematocrit in vertebrates (Stark & Schuster, 2012)
    – additional optimality criteria (Schuster & Stark, 2014)
    – Visualization of blood flow

Biomechanical characteristics of muscles

* force measurements (Stark & Schilling, 2010)
* simulation with Ansys or FEBio
    – material models
    – evaluation of displacement, stress & strain
