In a wide range of biomechanical modeling of aorta from traumatic injury to stent grafts, the arterial wall has been considered as a single homogeneous layer vessel, ignoring the fact that arteries are composed of distinct anatomical layers with different mechanical characteristics. In this study, using a custom-made nanoindentation technique, changes in the mechanical properties of porcine thoracic aorta wall in the radial direction were characterized using a quasi-linear viscoelastic model… Expand
Investigation of inhomogeneous and anisotropic material behavior of porcine thoracic aorta using nano-indentation tests.
TLDR
This study investigates the inhomogeneity and anisotropy of porcine descending thoracic aorta in three dimensions using a custom-made nano-indentation technique and a quasi-linear viscoelastic modeling approach to better understand the mechanisms of aortA deformation and improve the spatial accuracy of computational models of aorts.

TLDR
Preliminary findings of decreased elastic moduli and altered wall composition warrant further microscopic stiffness investigation to potentially clarify AAA pathophysiology and to explore potential treatment by wall strengthening. Expand
Energy-based constitutive modelling of local material properties of canine aortas
TLDR
The constitutive models can be readily used to design computational models of tissue deformation during physiological loading cycles, and extend the understanding of local mechanical properties that could lead to region-specific diagnostics and treatment of arterial diseases. Expand

Age dependency of the biaxial biomechanical behavior of human abdominal aorta.
TLDR
The biaxial tensile testing results reported here are the first given for the human infrarenal aorta and reinforce the importance of determining the functional form of W from experimental data. Expand

TLDR
A scanning micro indentation tester, a scaled-up version of the atomic force microscope, and measured the topography and the stiffness distribution of the cut surface found that the surface of the section of porcine thoracic aortas shows hill and valley pattern corresponding with their histology, indicating that the hills are the ELs and the valleys the SMLs.

The aim of this study was to characterize the nonlinear anisotropic elastic behavior of healthy porcine coronary arteries under uniaxial and equibiaxial tension and proposed that an isotropic hyperelastic model may adequately represent the properties of an artery. Expand

Failure properties of passive human aortic tissue. II--Biaxial tension tests.
TLDR
Under conditions of uniform biaxial stretch the tissue consistently failed in a direction perpendicular to the long axis of the aorta and pressure values at failure were greater by a factor of two in the dynamic tests than those in the quasi-static tests. Expand
Material properties for modeling traumatic aortic rupture.
TLDR
The specimens show no significant difference in response between the in situ tests and the in vitro tests, which indicates either that the internal thoracic boundary conditions may not be important in the stress and strain level of aorta failure or that the number of in situ Tests was too small to establish a difference.
