Provide a basic fundamental learning tool to understand mechanically driven density and volume growth in biological tissues.

This project provides a simple but yet very illustrative tool how changes in the mechanical environment effect biological structure, density and volume. The simulation is based on three dimensional geometrically nonlinear finite elements. The code is developed in matlab and very basic. The project has been developed and used in class (ME337, "Mechanics of Growth").
