Article Title: Continuum Based Tumor Growth Modeling
by A. A. Golneshan and H. Nemati

Tumor growth is strongly coupled with residual stress generated during the growth process. Several models have already been proposed to capture tumor growth. Most of these models are based on multiplicative decomposition of the deformation gradient model. In part I of this paper, a new method is proposed to model the generated residual stress in a growing solid using the continuum framework. To show the applicability of this model, part II of this paper will include: Modeling a Carcinoma tumor, modeling a tumor spheroid, and a comparison of the results with those obtained using the result of "multiple natural configurations" model.
Keywords: solid tumor, growth methodology, soft tissue, tumor growth modeling, residual stress
