The viscoelastic properties of arterial tissue dictate vessel behavior in certain disease states, injury modalities, and during some endovascular procedures. In this study, we characterized the viscoelastic mechanical response of porcine abdominal aortic tissue via uniaxial mechanical experiments on vascular tissue samples coupled with full-field surface strain measurements using the 2-D digital image correlation (DIC) technique. The measured stress relaxation response and intimal surface…

A STRUCTURE-MOTIVATED MODEL OF THE PASSIVE MECHANICAL RESPONSE OF THE PRIMARY PORCINE RENAL ARTERY

This study quantifies the passive mechanical response of the primary porcine renal artery through bi-axial mechanical testing that probes the pressure-deformed diameter and pressure-AXial force relationships at various longitudinal extensions, including the in-vivo axial stretch ratio.

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 circular
