Skin forms the outermost layer of the human body and, because of its high visibility and importance, it has been studied in many areas of science and technology such as biomechanics, forensics and computer animation. This talk will give an overview of our computational efforts to simulate skin undergoing complex deformations. I will also talk about devices under development that gather the necessary force-displacement data to validate these models.
