A New Constitutive Framework for Arterial Wall Mechanics and a Comparative Study of Material Models
In this paper we develop a new constitutive law for the description of the (passive) mechanical response of arterial tissue. The artery is modeled as a thick-walled nonlinearly elastic circularExpand

Hyperelastic modelling of arterial layers with distributed collagen fibre orientations
Constitutive relations are fundamental to the solution of problems in continuum mechanics, and are required in the study of, for example, mechanically dominated clinical interventions involving softExpand

In this paper, we first of all review the morphology and structure of the myocardium and discuss the main features of the mechanical response of passive myocardium tissue, which is an orthotropicExpand

A pseudo–elastic model for the Mullins effect in filled rubber
When a rubber test piece is loaded in simple tension from its virgin state, unloaded and then reloaded, the stress required on reloading is less than that on the initial loading for stretches up toExpand

A constitutive model for the Mullins effect with permanent set in particle-reinforced rubber
Stress softening during initial loading cycles, known as the Mullins effect, and the residual strain upon unloading are not accounted for when the mechanical properties of rubber are represented inExpand

Fitting hyperelastic models to experimental data
This paper is concerned with determining material parameters in incompressible isotropic elastic strain–energy functions on the basis of a non-linear least squares optimization method by fitting dataExpand

Nonlinear Electroelastic Deformations
Electro-sensitive (ES) elastomers form a class of smart materials whose mechanical properties can be changed rapidly by the application of an electric field. These materials have attractedExpand

Nonlinear Elasticity, Anisotropy, Material Stability and Residual Stresses in Soft Tissue
In this chapter the basic equations of nonlinear elasticity theory needed for the analysis of the elastic behaviour of soft tissues are summarized. Particular attention is paid to characterizing theExpand
