Many thanks to Peter Cummings for a very interesting and enlightening talk!
061008 GPeng - the crack propagation modeling that you mention in slide 31 could very well apply to surgical cutting simulations
061008 GPeng - On slide 29, you mention standards for interoperability of codes - can you elaborate on the CAPE-OPEN activities please? Has it been applied in biological fields? http://www.colan.org/Download/Part%201%20-%20Introduction.pdf
