FEBio Plugin of Entropic Fiber Model based on Langevin Mechanics - Shi et al. 2022 Acta Biomaterialia

Shi, Lei; Myers, Kristin M.

This FEBio material plugin implements a unconstrained uncoupled anisotropic formulation of the constitutive model by Shi et al. (2022). It is a compressible fiber constitutive model derived for modeling polymers based on Langevin statistics mechanics. It can be used for other fibrous materials such as biological tissue as well. As any other unconstrained material, it can be combined in a solid mixture with other laws, for example continuous fiber distribution materials. Details can be found in Shi et al. (2022).
