The objective of this study was to determine a relationship between shear stress and strain for human brain tissue by performing transient, single-pulse, high-rate, shear displacement tests. A constant velocity, parallel plate shear test device was designed and fabricated. This equipment generated constant rate shear strains in cylindrical tissue samples mounted between the shear plates. The transverse reaction force at the upper end of the sample was measured during the event with a sensitive… CONTINUE READING
