Mechanical anisotropy of inflated elastic tissue from the pig aorta.

Abstract

Uniaxial and biaxial mechanical properties of purified elastic tissue from the proximal thoracic aorta were studied to understand physiological load distributions within the arterial wall. Stress-strain behaviour was non-linear in uniaxial and inflation tests. Elastic tissue was 40% stiffer in the circumferential direction compared to axial in uniaxial… (More)
