... Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most important problems in biomechanical engineering, and there have been many experiments conducted in order to characterize the mechanical properties of brain tissue. However, obtaining fresh human brain tissue is difficult, if not impossible. Also...

... of the brain tissue in the white matter assuming the unidirectional or bi-directional orientations for axons with and without undulation. A unit cell of the representative volume element of the material is composed of extracellular matrix and axons. Micromechanical principals are used with the unit cell under...
