  • Bending instabilities of soft biological tissues 

    Destrade, Michel; Ní Annaidh, Aisling (Elsevier, 2009-12-15)
    Rubber components and soft biological tissues are often subjected to large bending deformations while 'in service'. The circumferential line elements on the inner face of a bent block can contract up to a certain critical ...
  • Wrinkles in the opening angle method 

    Destrade, Michel; Lusetti, Irene; Mangan, Robert; Sigaeva, Taisiya (Elsevier, 2017-06-10)
    We investigate the stability of the deformation modeled by the opening angle method, often used to give a measure of residual stresses in arteries and other biological soft tubular structures. Specifically, we study the ...
