Mechanical Assessment and Hyper-elastic Modeling of Polyurethanes for the Early Design of Vascular Graft
The lack of suitable autologous grafts and poor compliance of existing prostheses have prompted the study of novel materials for vascular graft design. Polyurethanes (PUs) were used in the past because they have high compliance and properties that are similar to those of native tissue. In this work, the mechanical properties of a group of PUs in two states (non-hydrated and hydrated) were studied using uniaxial tensile tests, strain sweep tests, and multi-step creep recovery tests.doi:10.20944/preprints202010.0058.v1 fatcat:c4addeag3vbk7i6gegj3a4oi54
