  • Elastic interface acoustic waves in twinned crystals 

    Destrade, Michel (Elsevier, 2003)
    A new type of interface acoustic waves (IAW) is presented, for single-crystal orthotropic twins bonded symmetrically along a plane containing only one common crystallographic axis. The effective boundary conditions show ...
  • ENDOCOM: Abdominal aortic aneurysm test bench for in vitro simulation 

    Destrade, Michel (IEEE, 2007)
    An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a dilatation of the aorta at the abdominal level, whose rupture is a life threatening complication. Recent treatment procedures of AAA consists in endovascular treatment with covered ...
  • Experimental characterisation of neural tissue at collision speeds 

    Destrade, Michel; Rashid, Bader; Gilchrist, Michael (International Research Council on Biomechanics of Injury (IRCOBI), 2012)
    Mechanical characterisation of brain tissue at high loading velocities is particularly important for modelling Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). During severe impact conditions, brain tissue experiences a mixture of compression, ...
  • Finite-amplitude Love waves in a pre-stressed neo-Hookean material 

    Destrade, Michel; Rodrigues Ferreira, Elizabete; Boulanger, Philippe (2008)
    In the context of the non-linear elasticity theory we consider a model for compressible solids called compressible neoHookean material . We show how (exact) finite-amplitude inhomogeneous plane wave solutions and ...
  • Hyperelastic and viscoelastic properties of brain tissue in tension 

    Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (ASME, 2012)
    Mechanical characterization of brain tissue at high loading velocities is particularly important for modelling Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). During severe impact conditions, brain tissue experiences a mixture of compression, ...
  • Mechanical properties of excised human skin 

    Ni Annaidh, Aisling; Ottenio, M.; Bruyere, K.; Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (Springer Verlag, 2010)
    In this study we have investigated in influence of location, gender and orientation on the deformation characteristics of 55 samples of human excised skin. Uniaxial tensile tests were carried out at a strain rate of ...
  • Nonlinear correction to the Euler buckling formula for compressed cylinders with guided-guided end conditions 

    Destrade, Michel (Springer, 2011-02)
    Euler's celebrated buckling formula gives the critical load N for the buckling of a slender cylindrical column with radius B and length L as N/([pi]^3 B^2 )=(E/4)(B/L)^2, where E is Young's modulus. Its derivation relies ...
  • A note about waves in dissipative and dispersive solids 

    Destrade, Michel; Saccomandi, Giuseppe (World Scientific, 2008)
    We study shear waves propagating in a special viscoelastic model proposed first by Fosdick and Yu in 1996. We deduce an asymptotic approximation which reduces the full balance equations to a system of evolution equations ...
  • Onde de Love Piézoacoustique 

    Collet, Bernard; Destrade, Michel (2006-04-24)
    Une sélection de résultats analytiques et numériques concernant la propagation d'ondes planes harmoniques guidées dans un bicouche piézoélectrique est présentée. L'étude effectuée concerne les modes transverses horizontaux ...
  • Rayleigh waves in anisotropic crystals rotating about the normal to a symmetry plane 

    Destrade, Michel (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2004)
    The propagation of surface acoustic waves in a rotating anisotropic crystal is studied. The crystal is monoclinic and cut along a plane containing the normal to the symmetry plane; this normal is also the axis of rotation. ...
  • Strain rate effects on the failure characteristics of excised human skin 

    Destrade, Michel (The 9th International Conference on the Mechanics of Time Dependent Materials, 2014)
    Skin is a complex, multi-layered material which exhibits non-linear, anisotropic and viscoelastic behaviour. Its structure is complex and can be broadly divided into three main layers: the epidermis, the dermis and ...
  • Surface stability of nonlinear magnetoelastic solids 

    Ottenio, M.; Destrade, Michel; Ogden, R.W. (Wiley, 2007-12)
    The present paper proposes to identify surface stability when a magnetoelastic half-space is subjected to a pure homogeneous pre-deformation and to a magnetic field normal to its (plane) boundary. Clearly, the aim is to ...
  • Waves and vibrations in a solid of second grade 

    Destrade, Michel; Saccomandi, Giuseppe (World Scientific, 2006)
    We study the viscoelastic second grade solid, for which the constitutive equation consists in the sum of a purely elastic part and a viscoelastic part; this latter part is specified by two microstructural coefficients ...
  • Wireless communicative stent for follow-up of abdominal aortic aneurysm, 

    Destrade, Michel (IEEE, 2006)
    An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a dilatation of the aorta at the abdominal level, which rupture is a life threatening complication. Recent treatment of AAA consists in endovascular treatment with covered stent grafts. ...
