Methodical fitting for mathematical models of rubber-like materials
(The Royal Society Publishing, 2017-02-08)
A great variety of models can describe the nonlinear response of rubber to uniaxial tension. Yet an in-depth understanding of the successive stages of large extension is still lacking. We show that the response can be ...
Wrinkles in the opening angle method
We investigate the stability of the deformation modeled by the opening angle method, often used to give a measure of residual stresses in arteries and other biological soft tubular structures. Specifically, we study the ...
