A novel model for one-dimensional morphoelasticity. Part I - Theoretical foundations

Abstract:

While classical continuum theories of elasticity and viscoelasticity have long been used to describe the mechanical behaviour of solid biological tissues, they are of limited use for the description of biological tissues that undergo continuous remodelling. The structural changes to a soft tissue associated with growth and remodelling require a mathematical theory of ‘morphoelasticity’ that is more akin to plasticity than elasticity. However, previously-derived mathematical models for plastic...
