The role of anisotropy and fiber dispersion in the mechanics and remodeling of biological tissues

Abstract:

In many soft biological tissues mechanical strength and anisotropy are determined primarily by the presence of fibers, in particular collagen.

When an isotropic material is subject to a uniaxial tension, the principal strain transverse to the direction of applied load is always negative. However, in fiber reinforced materials the transverse principal strain can change its sign as the load increases, passing through the zero-points, known as perversions. We investigate how ...
