    • Micromechanical modelling of fatigue crack nucleation in stents 

      Sweeney, Caoimhe; McHugh, Peter; Leen, Sean B. (Bioengineering In Ireland Conference 2012, 2012)
      A finite element based micro-mechanical methodology for cyclic plasticity and fatigue crack initiation in cardiovascular stents is presented. The methodology is based on the combined use of a (global) three-dimensional ...
