Revisión de Modelos Hiperelásticos utilizados en Tejidos


This work is related to the hyperelastic models most used in soft tissue. The importance of obtaining accurate mechanical properties of tissues are of great interest for various medical applications, for example: in treatment of diseases and surgical simulations in real time. The aim of this literature review is to evaluate the models used for proposing a mathematical formulation and modelling the mechanical behaviour of a sequence of layers of soft tissues and your reply to undergo external actions of mechanical nature, in order to improve the techniques of characterization of soft tissues.
