An experimental procedure is described which has been developed to measure the elastic properties of the outer (adventitial) and inner (medial) layers of excised bovine carotid arteries. The data analysis is based on a two-layered arterial wall model and the theory of large elastic deformations. The energy density functions for both layers are exponentials. The results show that the media and the adventitia are anisotropic; that the media is stiffer, more non-linear, and subjected to higher… CONTINUE READING
