  • 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 ...
