At the Experimental Biomechanics Laboratory we perform experiments on human and porcine arteries in active and passive states, and human bones as humeri, femurs and metatarsals. We also investigate failure initiation in pultrusions (unidirectional composites).

Mechanical Experiments on Femurs:

Experiments on human femurs: Nir, Zohar, Ilan, Romina and Nathan (2013)

Experiments on porcine arteries: Itay, Matania and Danit (2013)


Equipment :

  • Shimatzu - 20kN tension/compression machine.
  • Six axes load cell.
  • -80C Freezer for bone storage
  • Homemade tension/inflation device for arteries.
  • Homemade device to measure artery compressibility.
