Muscular thin film (MTF) simulation using manduca muscle
Simulation of a thin layer of muscle tissue on a PDMS base, activated and deactivated to demonstrate energy dissipation and for qualitative comparison to MTF developed by [Feinberg et al., Science. 2007]. Article is in the works, but see [Paetsch et al., Int. J. Nonlinear Mech., 2012] for the constitutive model used and background.
