BIOLOGICAL SOFT TISSUES: MECHANICAL CHARACTERIZATION, DATA ANALYSIS AND MODELS’ EVALUATION
Kazakevičiūtė-Makovska R.
pages 305 - 308, full text

Mechanical test procedures and a systematic data analysis of soft tissues are discussed with the view of providing experimental bases for the evaluation and validation of constitutive models for this class of biological materials. A new methodology and measures are presented for the quantitative and qualitative characterization of the mechanical response of soft tissues under monotonic (J-shape response) and quasistatic cyclic loading (stress softening effect) in different deformation modes. The general structure of constitutive theory and special models are shortly discussed within the same conceptual framework.
