#### 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

(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, ...

#### 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

(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 ...

#### The bosonic vertex operator algebra on a genus g Riemann surface

(2011-08)

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 ...
