The structural response of a large artery is characteristically complex and includes the highly non-linear, history-dependent response of a nonhomogeneous anisotropic structure undergoing finite deformations. The mechanics of the arterial wall has been studied for nearly two centuries. The goals of such research range from the desire to have a basic knowledge and understanding of the mechanics and physiology of this complex structure to the need for data and methods for the design of arterial… CONTINUE READING
