Title

Biaxial Finite Deformations of Arterial and Venous Segments under Plus or Minus G//Z Acceleration Stress

Abstract

Recent developments in spacecraft and high performance aircraft have resulted in the exposure of the human body to acceleration trauma which manifests itself in circulatory impairment. To aid in the design of life support systems for aerospace maneuvers, the radial and axial deformations of the arterial and venous segments under dynamic fluid loads caused by blood pooling during acceleration are calculated. The proposed scheme is useful to estimate cardiac insufficiency under acceleration stress of the aerospace environment.
