  • 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 ...
  • 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 simple shear at dynamic strain rates 

    Rashid, Badar; Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (Elsevier, 2013-12)
    During severe impact conditions, brain tissue experiences a rapid and complex deformation, which can be seen as a mixture of compression, tension and shear. Diffuse axonal injury (DAI) occurs in animals and humans when ...
  • 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 ...
