Skin - Mechanics


Skin has a soft tissue mechanical behavior when stretched. The intact skin is prestreched (i.e. has residual stress) like neoprene wetsuits around the diver's body. When deep cuts are made on the skin, it retracts, widening the slice hole.

Famous quotes containing the word mechanics:

    the moderate Aristotelian city
    Of darning and the Eight-Fifteen, where Euclid’s geometry
    And Newton’s mechanics would account for our experience,
    And the kitchen table exists because I scrub it.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)
