Arterial Wall Viscoelasticity

Application ID: 42821


Anisotropic hyperelastic materials are used for modeling collagenous soft tissue in arterial walls. The arterial wall mechanics application describes a section of an artery based on the Holzapfel-Gasser-Ogden hyperelastic material model. In this example the dynamic behavior of the artery is studied, especially the viscoelastic response is calculated by adding a five branches viscoelasticity feature to the hyperelastic material.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
