Resum
Accurate material properties of tissues are a key factor for the improvement of medical procedures and treatments. Experimental data are essential in order to formulate and validate a useful constitutive model for predicting the mechanical behavior of tissues in these procedures. This study develops a comprehensive experimental protocol at multiple length scale levels in order to obtain stress-strain curves for esophagus tissue. This paper compares two different models: a conventional, non-linea...
