Abstract

This paper presents a computational model for the simulation of the tissue growth during the evolution of arterial aneurysms. In particular, a finite strain anisotropic framework with multiplicative decomposition of the deformation gradient has been used within the finite element framework. The illustrative example shows the simulation of the growth of a fusiform aneurysm on a simplified geometry and perturbation configuration.
