We present a novel mathematical model to study the mechanical properties of endovascular stents in their expanded state. The model is based on the theory of slender curved rods. Stent struts are modeled as linearly elastic curved rods that satisfy the kinematic and dynamic contact conditions at the vertices where the struts meet. A weak formulation for the stent problem is defined and a Finite Element Method for a numerical computation of its solution is used to study mechanical properties of… CONTINUE READING
