Iii) Updating the contact force for each master contact particle During the simulation, the substrate is deformable. Therefore, the contact force needs to be added to the master nodal particles to make sure that the total force is balanced. 25) α < 1). 26) (iv) Redistributing the contact forces to neighboring particles within the substrate The nodal force vectors calculated above are the exact vectors for each penetrating slave particle and the corresponding master nodal surface particles. In the meshfree approach, we redistribute each exact nodal force to its supporting nodal particle.

6 Discussion and conclusions In conclusion, the described soft matter physics cell model may be applicable to simulations of stem cell contact. The presented models provide possible explanations of cell mechanotransduction and other adaptive issues at the larger scale level. 19). It should be noted that cell behavior, in particular stem cell behavior, is a complex biological phenomenon. The proposed soft matter physics cell model References 51 is only intended to model the mechanical behavior of cells at a coarse level, which may not explain the molecular mechanisms of cell motion, evolution, and proliferation.
