Abstract

Skin can be considered to be a mixture of a solid and a fluid. A general theory for the description of the behaviour of mixtures is presented and applied to a mixture of a solid and a fluid. A numerical procedure is presented to solve the non-linear field equations describing such a mixture. The abilities of the procedure are demonstrated by means of a confined compression test.
