The collagen network in skin is largely responsible for the nonlinear mechanical stress-strain response of skin. We hypothesize that the force-stretch response of collagen is governed by the entropics of long-chain molecules. We show that a constitutive model derived from the statistical mechanics of long-chain molecules, corresponding to the fibrous collagen network in skin, captures the mechanical response of skin. A connection between the physiologically meaningful parameters of network… CONTINUE READING
