The aim of the study is to characterise mechanical properties of human abdominal fascia according to its direction of loading and localization. The one-dimensional tensile behaviour of human abdominal fascia and its orthotropy has been studied experimentally using human umbilical (UF) and transversalis fascia (FT). The specimens have been cut and stretched(More)
This investigation is devoted to the study of the viscoelastic behavior of human abdominal fascia from the umbilical region. Seventeen samples 10 mm wide and up to 70 mm long were cut along the primary fiber direction (group FL) or perpendicular to it (group FT) and subjected to relaxation tests. The viscoelastic response of the tissue at three different(More)
