Call for special issue papers: Mechanics of cells, tissues, and biomaterials

The paramount role of mechanics in life has recently been the center of attention of many researchers. This special issue will be focusing on the role of mechanics in the life of cells and tissues and their interactions with biomaterials. Original research and review papers are solicited for review and publication in the journal Mechanical Sciences . Mechanical Sciences is an academic open-access journal sponsored by the Library of Delft University of Technology and The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO).

Convergence Problem using Biphasic Material to model hip joint in Abaqus

Dear All,

i am new to this forum and would like say hello to everybody!

I am currently working on a hip joint model consistent mainly
of the cartilogenous tissues. Biphasic Materials consitent of
a linear elastic Matrix and trapped fluid, which i modelled in
abaqus using Soil Mechanics (permeability).

At the moment, however, i am unable to obtain convergence. The
whole calculation stops at ca 0.122 sec out of total 1 sec. I
guess its just one parameter set wrong in Contact or an convergence
