Abstract
The mechanics of biological entities, from single molecules to the whole organ, has been extensively analyzed during the last decades. At the smaller scales, statistical mechanics has fostered successful physical models of proteins and molecules, which have been later incorporated within constitutive models of rubber-like materials and biological tissues. At the macroscopic scale, the additive decomposition of energy functions i.e., a parallel arrangement of the tissue constituent, has been recu...
