Strain rate effects on the failure characteristics of excised human skin
(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 ...
Hyperelastic and viscoelastic properties of brain tissue in tension
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, ...
Experimental characterisation of neural tissue at collision speeds
(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, ...
Mechanical properties of excised human skin
(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
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 ...
The bosonic vertex operator algebra on a genus g Riemann surface
We discuss the partition function for the Heisenberg vertex operator algebra on a genus g Riemann surface formed by sewing handles to a Riemann sphere. In particular, it is shown how the partition can be computed by means ...
