FEA package for performing qualitative studies on the micromechanics of blood vessel tissue.
This project is a parallel finite element analysis (FEA) tool for nonlinear solid mechanics. The FEA tool uses discontinuous Galerkin which specifically designed for nearly incompressible materials such as biological tissue. In addition to the FEA libraries, the project also includes a set of binaries which describe the geometry of the elastin microstructure in rat aorta. The geometry was obtained from high resolution electron microscopy.
