  • Mechanical properties of excised human skin 

    Ni Annaidh, Aisling; Ottenio, M.; Bruyere, K.; Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (Springer Verlag, 2010)
    In this study we have investigated in influence of location, gender and orientation on the deformation characteristics of 55 samples of human excised skin. Uniaxial tensile tests were carried out at a strain rate of ...
  • A note about waves in dissipative and dispersive solids 

    Destrade, Michel; Saccomandi, Giuseppe (World Scientific, 2008)
    We study shear waves propagating in a special viscoelastic model proposed first by Fosdick and Yu in 1996. We deduce an asymptotic approximation which reduces the full balance equations to a system of evolution equations ...
  • Onde de Love Piézoacoustique 

    Collet, Bernard; Destrade, Michel (2006-04-24)
    Une sélection de résultats analytiques et numériques concernant la propagation d'ondes planes harmoniques guidées dans un bicouche piézoélectrique est présentée. L'étude effectuée concerne les modes transverses horizontaux ...
  • Waves and vibrations in a solid of second grade 

    Destrade, Michel; Saccomandi, Giuseppe (World Scientific, 2006)
    We study the viscoelastic second grade solid, for which the constitutive equation consists in the sum of a purely elastic part and a viscoelastic part; this latter part is specified by two microstructural coefficients ...
