The airways and parenchyma of lung experience large deformations during normal respiration. Spatially accurate predictions of airflow patterns and aerosol transport therefore require respiration to be modeled as a fluid-structure interaction problem. Such computational models in turn require constitutive models for the parencyhma that are both accurate and efficient. Herein, an implicit theory of elasticity is derived from thermodynamics to meet this need, leading to a generic template for strain-energy that is shown to be an exact analogue for the well-known Fung model that is the root of modern constitutive theory of tissues. To support this theory, we also propose a novel definition of Lagrangian strain rate. Unlike the classic definition of Lagrangian strain rate, this new definition is separable into volumetric and deviatoric terms, a separation that is both mathematically and physically justified. Within this framework, a novel material model capable of describing the elastic contribution of the nonlinear response of parenchyma is constructed and characterized against published data. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

What: Security Innovation’s Jonathan Pettit, Senior Director of Research and Gene Carter, Director of Product Management, speak at InfoSecurity Boston 2016. Pettit presented on Automotive Industry Case Study Keeping up with Next-Generation of Cyber Risks: Securing the Connected Car. He shared practical insight into the reality of car hacking and share best practice measures to manage the risks. · Understand the real cyber risk of the connected car · Identify vulnerabilities that make connected vehicles susceptible to hacking and what attack vectors could be used · Determine how collaboration can be fostered between manufacturers and security researchers. Meanwhile, Carter will be speaking on a panel entitled Securing the Internet of Things: What is the Real Risk for Enterprise Cybersecurity? Carter was joined by industry experts from VDC Research, Partners Healthcare and Saginaw Valley State University to share expert advice on how to prepare for the emerging risks. · Understand how to balance consumer and employee demands for new technology with governance and controls · Identify strategies to ensure information assets are secure on the IoT · Determine how information should be controlled on the IoT and understand who is responsible for that information · Understand the privacy risks associated with the IoT and how to meet privacy and security standards in a connected world · Explore the current and potential future relationship between information and physical security. Who: Since 2002, Security Innovation has been a trusted partner to organizations that want to understand where their applications are vulnerable and rollout a secure and repeatable software development lifecycle (SDLC). Security Innovation helps organizations protect sensitive data in the most challenging environments - IoT, web applications, mobile devices and in the cloud. By leveraging secure coding and embedded systems design skills, our experts help secure automotive communication systems, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), over-the-air (OTA) updates, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and any other electronic control unit (ECU). Why: Jonathan Petit is an industry innovator and connected car security expert. In his well-publicized research, Dr. Petit was able to fool a self-driving car into thinking there were other cars and pedestrians around it, stopping the vehicle in its tracks. This was achieved with only $60 worth of equipment bought over the counter. Gene is the Director of Product Management and Marketing for Security Innovation's Embedded Division, including Aerolink Vehicle to Vehicle Communications Security and Privacy libraries, NTRU Cryptography, Automotive Embedded Security and TCG Software Stack TSS1.2 and TSS2.0 products. Who Should Attend: Anyone in the information security, cybersecurity and IT security world who wants to learn more about securing the Internet of Things and or automotive security. When: Tuesday, December 6, 2016 Automotive Industry Case Study discussion: 11:10-11:50am Securing the Internet of Things discussion: 9:50-10:40am
