Rheology of Living Materials [chapter]

Modeling of Biological Materials  
In this chapter, the properties of biological materials are described both from a microscopic and a macroscopic point of view. Different techniques for measuring cell and tissue properties are described. Models are presented in the framework of continuum theories of viscoelasticity. Such models are used for characterizing experimental data. Finally, applications of such modeling are discussed in a few situations of interest.
