In the previously published MECpH model, however, there is the drawback that the mechanical equilibrium is governed by linear elastic theory, so that it is applicable only for small deformation of the hydrogel.
On the other hand, the boundary conditions for mechanical equilibrium are imposed within the hydrogel domain only.
If one assumes mechanical equilibrium, the force balance (Figure 1) gives
That changes first: Still a quadratic variance distribution function, it becomes a multidimensional distribution, having a matrix parameter characterizing the internal mechanical equilibrium necessary in the definition of stresses.
Pendant drop method: The pendant drop method involves the determination of the profile of a drop of one denser liquid suspended in a less dense liquid at mechanical equilibrium.
