      The effect of strain hardening on the dynamic response of human artery segments 

      Charalambous, H. P.; Roussis, Panayiotis C.; Giannakopoulos, A. E. (2017)
      Background: When subjected to time-dependent blood pressure, human arteries undergo large deformations, exhibiting mainly nonlinear hyperelastic type of response. The mechanical response of arteries depends on the health ...

      Experimental investigation on the confining effect of fibers in SHFRCC 

      Georgiou, A. V.; Pantazopoulou, Stavroula J. (2017)
      Strain Hardening Fiber Reinforced Cementitious Composites (SHFRCC) comprise of a mix design that differs from normal concrete mixes. Fibers act as mass reinforcement leading to large deformation capacities, bridging of the ...
