  • A high rate tension device for characterizing brain tissue 

    Destrade, Michel (SAGE Journals, 2012-03-08)
    The mechanical characterization of brain tissue at high loading velocities is vital for understanding and modeling traumatic brain injury. The most severe form of traumatic brain injury is diffuse axonal injury, which ...
  • 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). ...
  • Mechanical characterization of brain tissue in compression at dynamic strain rates 

    Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (Elsevier, 2012-03-02)
    Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when local mechanical load exceeds certain tolerance levels for brain tissue. Extensive research has been done previously for brain matter experiencing compression at quasistatic loading; ...
  • Mechanical characterization of brain tissue in tension at dynamic strain rates 

    Rashid, B,Destrade, M,Gilchrist, MD; Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (Elsevier, 2012-09-10)
    Mechanical characterization of brain tissue at high loading velocities is crucial for modeling Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). During severe impact conditions, brain tissue experiences compression, tension and shear. Limited ...
  • Toward a predictive assessment of stab-penetration forces 

    Destrade, Michel (Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2015-09)
    Collaborative research between the disciplines of forensic pathology and biomechanics was undertaken to investigate the hyperelastic properties of human skin, to determine the force required for sharp instrument penetration ...
