  1. 1. Arterial mechanics : noninvasive identification of constitutive parameters and residual stress

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Jonas Stålhand; Gerhard A. Holzapfel; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the mechanical modelling of arteries, and particularly a method to identify parameters describing the mechanical properties using only clinically obtainable in vivo measurements. The artery is modelled as a fibre reinforced, incompressible, thick-walled cylinder subjected to large deformations and a residual stress field. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modelling the passive mechanical properties of arteries

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Jonas Stålhand; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the modelling of passive mechanical properties of arteries. An artery is characterised by large nonlinear deformation, anisotropy and incompressibility. In addition, it is subjected to a residual stress when the applied load is removed. All this combined makes it complex to derive appropriate mechanical models. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mechanical response of cross-linked actin networks

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Björn Fallqvist; Martin Kroon; Jonas Stålhand; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : The ability to predict the mechanical properties of cells should be seen in the light of the close connection between abnormal cell states and a change in the cell response to stimuli. For example, it has been found that the stiffness of cancer cells is much lower than their healthy counterparts, influencing metastasis and cell migration. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mechanical Properties of Arteries Identification and Application

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Jan-Lucas Gade; Jonas Stålhand; Carl-Johan Thore; Håkan Johansson; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : In this Licentiate of Engineering thesis, a method is proposed that identifies the mechanical properties of arteries in vivo. The mechanical properties of an artery are linked to the development of cardiovascular diseases. READ MORE
