In the domain of soft tissue biomechanics, the development of numerical simulations has raised the experimental challenge of identifying local internal mechanical constitutive data of heterogeneous organs (e.g. brain tissue). In this context, this paper presents an ex-vivo alternative characterization method to full-field imaging techniques. It is based on… CONTINUE READING
