THORACIC MODEL IMPROVEMENTS (EXPERIMENTAL TISSUE PROPERTIES). VOLUME I. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The general objective of this research program was to obtain mechanical properties, both stress, strain, and rupture strength, for various human tissues that are directly applicable to the thoracic injury problem as defined in the finite element model of the human thorax that is being developed. The properties were determined at strain rates that can occur during fatal automobile accidents. The properties of Rhesus monkey tissues are also of interest in the modelling effort, and consideration was given to providing experimental data on selected Rhesus tissues as well as human tissues.
