A Coupled Experiment-finite Element Modeling Methodology for Assessing High Strain Rate Mechanical Response of Soft Biomaterials Rajkumar Prabhu1, Wilburn R. Whittington2, Sourav S.

Horstemeyer2 1Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering, Mississippi State University, 2Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems, Mississippi State University The current study prescribes a coupled experiment-finite element simulation methodology to obtain the uniaxial dynamic mechanical response of soft biomaterials (brain, liver, tendon, fat, etc.). The multiaxial experimental results that arose because of specimen bulging obtained from Split-Hopkinson Pressure Bar testing were rendered to a uniaxial true stress-strain behavior when simulated through iterative optimization of the finite element analysis of the biomaterial.
