18 12/13 IN SUMMARY... Subject to some modifications, the model just presented is applicable: to mixtures of liquid and semi-solid particles themselves containing a solid- liquid mixture (e.g. biological sludges?); to solid-liquid mixtures with highly deformable solid particles (model should be upgraded with a Voigt element to account for secondary-creep consol.). TAKE-HOME MESSAGE(S) The mathematical model used to describe a bio-physical or bio-mechanical process should be built from the morphology up, not forced to conform to existing models. We should not be afraid to try and develop new models, even in cases where the object is complex!
