    • Determination of friction coefficient in unconfined compression of brain tissue 

      Rashid, Badar; Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael (Elsevier, 2012-10)
      Unconfined compression tests are more convenient to perform on cylindrical samples of brain tissue than tensile tests in order to estimate mechanical properties of the brain tissue because they allow for homogeneous ...
    • Mechanical characterization of brain tissue in tension at dynamic strain rates 

      Rashid, B,Destrade, M,Gilchrist, MD; Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (Elsevier, 2012-09-10)
      Mechanical characterization of brain tissue at high loading velocities is crucial for modeling Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). During severe impact conditions, brain tissue experiences compression, tension and shear. Limited ...
