Transport theorems, such as that named after Reynolds, are an important tool in the field of continuum physics. Recently, Seguin and Fried used Harrison's theory of differential chains to establish a transport theorem valid for evolving domains that may become irregular. Evolving irregular domains occur in many different physical settings, such as phase transitions or fracture. Read More

On the Mechanics of Fatigue and Fracture in Teeth.

Appl Mech Rev 2014 May 30;66(3):0308031-3080319. Epub 2014 Apr 30.

Department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Washington , Seattle, WA 98195;

Tooth fracture is a major concern in the field of restorative dentistry. However, knowledge of the causes for tooth fracture has developed from contributions that are largely based within the field of mechanics. The present manuscript presents a technical review of advances in understanding the fracture of teeth and the fatigue and fracture behavior of their hard tissues (i. Read More

Thermal Pain in Teeth: Electrophysiology Governed by Thermomechanics.

Appl Mech Rev 2014 May 18;66(3):0308011-3080114. Epub 2014 Apr 18.

Bioinspired Engineering and Biomechanics Center, Xi'an Jiaotong University , Xi'an 710049 , China e-mail: 

Thermal pain arising from the teeth is unlike that arising from anywhere else in the body. The source of this peculiarity is a long-standing mystery that has begun to unravel with recent experimental measurements and, somewhat surprisingly, new thermomechanical models. Pain from excessive heating and cooling is typically sensed throughout the body through the action of specific, heat sensitive ion channels that reside on sensory neurons known as nociceptors.

Cytoskeletal Mechanics Regulating Amoeboid Cell Locomotion.

Appl Mech Rev 2014 Jun;66(5)

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department, Institute for Engineering in Medicine, Bioengineering Department, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA.

Migrating cells exert traction forces when moving. Amoeboid cell migration is a common type of cell migration that appears in many physiological and pathological processes and is performed by a wide variety of cell types. Understanding the coupling of the biochemistry and mechanics underlying the process of migration has the potential to guide the development of pharmacological treatment or genetic manipulations to treat a wide range of diseases.
