  • A high rate tension device for characterizing brain tissue 

    Destrade, Michel (SAGE Journals, 2012-03-08)
    The mechanical characterization of brain tissue at high loading velocities is vital for understanding and modeling traumatic brain injury. The most severe form of traumatic brain injury is diffuse axonal injury, which ...
  • 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 ...
