1 is employed. Since the quasistatic problem is transformed into a dynamical problem, boundary conditions become unnecessary. e. 4. Particularly, the contact constant κp is automatically selected by the code in such a way that it is as large as possible, but at the same time it does not reduce the critical time step resulting from the cell’s elements. 5] μm. 11 show six snapshots of the tumor development. The coloring in the figures indicates the cell generation, showing higher division activity on the borders.

3 Contact and adhesion models for cell-substrate interactions The interplay between a cell and its ECM is defined by complex interactions between ligands and receptors. In this research approach, we do not model the exact molecular mechanisms of the adhesion phenomenon or the detailed molecular motions during this complex process. Instead, we model an overall adhesion effect between cells and their substrates. The specific attractive adhesion force may be simulated by a cohesive potential, or an attractive potential force, while the steric interaction between the cell membrane and the substrate is treated as the repulsive force.
