On a phase field model of Cahn–Hilliard type for tumour growth with mechanical effects

Garcke, Harald ; Lam, Kei Fong ; Signori, Andrea


Mechanical effects have mostly been neglected so far in phase field tumour models that are based on a Cahn-Hilliard approach. In this paper we study a macroscopic mechanical model for tumour growth in which cell-cell adhesion effects are taken into account with the help of a Ginzburg-Landau type energy. In the overall model an equation of Cahn-Hilliard type is coupled to the system of linear ...
