  • Determination of friction coefficient in unconfined compression of brain tissue 

    Rashid, Badar; Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael (Elsevier, 2012-10)
    Unconfined compression tests are more convenient to perform on cylindrical samples of brain tissue than tensile tests in order to estimate mechanical properties of the brain tissue because they allow for homogeneous ...
  • Experimental characterisation of neural tissue at collision speeds 

    Destrade, Michel; Rashid, Bader; Gilchrist, Michael (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, ...
  • Inhomogeneous deformation of brain tissue during tension tests 

    Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael (Elsevier, 2012)
    Mechanical characterization of brain tissue has been investigated extensively by various research groups over the past 50 years. These properties are particularly important for modeling Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). ...
  • Temperature effects on brain tissue in compression 

    Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael (2012)
    Extensive research has been carried out for at least 50 years to understand the mechanical properties of brain tissue in order to understand the mechanisms of traumatic brain injury (TBI). The observed large variability ...
