Optimizing PE considering tunica structure
My understanding of the tunica structure is that of a network, as shown in the scheme. That specific structure with fibres oriented in more or less perpendicular layers quite likely has a peculiar way to react to deformations, as shown in the scheme in the appendix.
I think that this presumed behavior of the tunica in response to stress should be considered in order to optimize our pe-efforts.
I will continue the thread as soon as the moderators have accepted the little drawing.
