A constitutive law that includes three analytical expressions was recently proposed to approximate the low, physiologic, and high-stress parts of the aortic stress-strain relation in uniaxial tension, consistent with the biphasic nature of the aortic wall under passive conditions. This consistency, and the fact that previous phenomenological uniaxial laws have only indirectly been related to vessel wall structure, motivates the investigation of the structural basis underlying the newly proposed… CONTINUE READING
