    • Extreme softness of brain matter in simple shear 

      Destrade, Michel; Murphy, J.G.; Gilchrist, M.; Rashid, J.G.; Saccomandi, Giuseppe (Elsevier, 2015-03-13)
      We show that porcine brain matter can be modelled accurately as a very soft rubber-like material using the Mooney-Rivlin strain energy function, up to strains as high as 60%. This result followed from simple shear experiments ...
    • Simple shear is not so simple 

      Destrade, Michel (2012-03)
      For homogeneous, isotropic, non-linearly elastic materials, the form of the homogeneous deformation consistent with the application of a Cauchy shear stress is derived here for both compressible and incompressible materials. ...
