An Experimental and Theoretical Study on the Anisotropy of Elastin Network

Abstract

The mechanical properties of elastin network from bovine thoracic aorta under biaxial tensile loading were studied both experimentally and theoretically. Histology and scanning electron microscopy were performed to verify the removal of cells, collagen, and other extracellular matrix components. Equi- and nonequi-biaxial tests were performed to study the… (More)
