Grahic Jump Location
One-layer model: (A) Circumferential stress at physiological conditions (16 kPa, inner and outer radii 1.29 and 1.44 mm) as a function of position through the wall for opening angles of 60–130 deg. (B) Inner wall circumferential stress σθi, mean circumferential stress σ̄θ, and inner wall stress concentration (σθi/σ̄θ) as functions of opening angle.
Grahic Jump Location
Circumferential stress at physiologic conditions as a function of position through the wall for a two-layer model with an opening angle of 95 deg for (A) varying relative adventitial thickness, (B) varying media material parameters
