Abstract

There is an urgent need for understanding the mechanical properties of vascular walls realistically and in detail because they have been recognized as very important and fundamental factors for the analysis of cardio-vascular disease and also because accurate knowledge of vascular rheology is required for an intelligent design of artificial blood vessels. The static mechanical properties of arteries have been studied extensively using infinitesimal strain theory, and recently have been determined on the basis of finite deformation theory. The purpose of this paper is to modify the stress-strain relation of vascular walls and to extend it to a triaxial form, assuming homogeneity and incompressibility.
