This paper compares two models predicting elastic and viscoelastic properties of large arteries. Models compared include a Kelvin (standard linear) model and an extended 2-term exponential linear viscoelastic model. Models were validated against in-vitro data from the ovine thoracic descending aorta and the carotid artery based on measurements of blood pressure data as an input to predict vessel cross-sectional area. Material properties were predicted by estimating a set of model parameters… CONTINUE READING
