FEM Analysis of Hyperelastic Behavior of Pig’s Skin with Anatomical Site Consideration
The aim of this work was to compare a hyperelastic material models (Ogden and Yeoh) implemented in ANSYS software to evaluate the experimental data obtained from uniaxial tensile test of pig’s skin taken from different location of the body (back and abdomen). The results were compared with the literature data. The effects of the simulation confirmed the possibility of using hyperelastic models to assess skin properties using FEM methods based on a static tensile test. The study reveals the need to validate results based on a wider range of data.
