Abstract

The aim of this paper is to formulate a novel mathematical model that will be able to differentiate not only between normal and abnormal tissues, but, more importantly, between benign and malignant tumors. We present some very promising preliminary results of a multiscale triphasic model for biological tissues that couple the electro-chemical processes that take place in tissue's microstructure and tissue's biomechanics. The multiscaling is based on a recently developed homogenization technique for materials with evolving microstructure.
