Abstract

This paper deals with the mechanical characterization of brain tissue which behaves as a viscoelastic material. We focus on the linear viscoelastic behavior, which should apply for small strains at any strain rate, and demonstrate the applicability of the time/temperature superposition principle. This principle allows the opportunity to extend the range of shear rates for which the material is characterized, and makes the results applicable to impact conditions. This characterization of the linear behavior forms the basis for a further nonlinear characterization of the tissue.
