Titel:
Preferred fiber orientations in healthy arteries and veins understood from netting analysis 
Abstract:
In this paper we analyze the reinforcement of blood vessels by collagen fibers using the concept of netting analysis from composite theory. To this end, we interpret preferred fiber reinforcement as the solution to a weighted optimization problem having two competing targets, minimal pulse pressure and minimal material usage, under the constraint of mechanical stability against buckling in a physiologically reasonable range of blood pressures. We demonstrate that the solution to this optimizatio...    »
