Mechanics of Traumatic Brain Injury at Multiple Length Scales
2010 (English)In: Proceedings of the 16th US National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, State College, 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
Current numerical head models predict the response of the brain based on a geometrically homogeneous anatomical structure. However, these models often lack the detailed anatomy of the heterogeneous structures within the head and an accurate description of the constitutive response of the brain tissue. A nonlinear constitutive model for brain tissue has been developed and validated. The consequences of meso-level heterogeneities in the brain for the development of traumatic brain injury have been investigated, as well as the orientationdependent sensitivity of brain tissue to mechanical loads based on a cellular injury mechanism.
