Exploring fracture mechanics of blood clot for hemostasis applications

Supervisor: Jianyu Li

The project is to understand the fracture mechanics of blood clots, develop novel experimental-computational frameworks for hemostasis applications and integrate interdisciplinary approaches including experimental mechanics, computational mechanics, biomaterials, as well as blood clot biochemistry to engineer tough adhesive blood clots or cell-based tough hydrogels that could prompt hemostasis performance, enhance clot stability and avoid rebleeding.

Keywords: Fracture mechanics, blood clot, hemostasis, biomaterial, biomechanics

Equipment: Instron universal tensile machine, rheometer, 3D printer

Techniques: Experimental mechanics, finite element simulation, biochemistry
