A mechanical model of soft biological tissue — An application to lung parenchyma

Abstract

This paper presents a fractal mechanical model for branching systems, with application to the respiratory system. Assuming a dichotomously branching tree, each airway tube is modeled by a Kelvin-Voigt model (a spring in parallel with a dashpot) using morphological values. The model allows investigations on the viscoelastic properties within the context of… (More)
