Strain rate dependency of wound breaking strength for the dermal wound model
1988 / IEEE / 0-7803-0785-2
This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' Strain rate dependency of wound breaking strength for the dermal wound model ' Male Fischer rats were given a full thickness, dorsal midline wound with a scalpel, and the wound was closed with 9-mm clips at 1-cm intervals. At postoperative day 14 the rats were sacrificed and wound-breaking strengths (WBS) for various strain rates were determined. The results demonstrated a dramatic dependence of WBS on strain rate.<
