Shedding Light on the Nonlinear Stiffening Effect of Sheared Type-I Collagen Networks
(Georgetown University, 2013)
Soft biopolymer networks undergo substantial bulk stiffening when subjected to shear strains. This nonlinear rheological signature has been well-documented for a wide range of semiflexible and stiff biopolymers, but the ...
