Arterial Wall Mechanics

Application ID: 14499


This model shows how to implement an anisotropic hyperelastic material for modeling collagenous soft tissue in arterial walls. The hyperelastic material model, called Holzapfel-Gasser-Ogden material, is based on the article: Holzapfel, G. A., Gasser, T. C., & Ogden, R. W. (2000). A new constitutive framework for arterial wall mechanics and a comparative study of material models. Journal of elasticity, 61(1), 1-48.
