Isotropic incompressible hyperelastic models for modelling the mechanical behaviour of biological tissues: a review.

Abstract

Modelling the mechanical behaviour of biological tissues is of vital importance for clinical applications. It is necessary for surgery simulation, tissue engineering, finite element modelling of soft tissues, etc. The theory of linear elasticity is frequently used to characterise biological tissues; however, the theory of nonlinear elasticity using… (More)
