Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Composite material
  • Surgery

Gerhard Holzapfel mainly focuses on Constitutive equation, Finite element method, Structural engineering, Mechanics and Biomechanics. The various areas that Gerhard Holzapfel examines in his Constitutive equation study include Elasticity, Hyperelastic material, Classical mechanics, Numerical analysis and Viscoelasticity. His research integrates issues of Balloon catheter, Fracture mechanics and Anisotropy in his study of Finite element method.

His study in Structural engineering is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biological system and Simple shear. Gerhard Holzapfel interconnects Mixed finite element method, Stress, Nonlinear system, Isotropy and Bending in the investigation of issues within Mechanics. Gerhard Holzapfel has included themes like Continuum mechanics, Adventitia and Biomedical engineering in his Biomechanics study.

His most cited work include:

  • A new constitutive framework for arterial wall mechanics and a comparative study of material models (2149 citations)
  • Nonlinear Solid Mechanics: A Continuum Approach for Engineering (1800 citations)
  • Hyperelastic modelling of arterial layers with distributed collagen fibre orientations (1421 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Gerhard Holzapfel mostly deals with Finite element method, Biomedical engineering, Mechanics, Constitutive equation and Composite material. Gerhard Holzapfel combines subjects such as Mathematical analysis, Viscoelasticity and Anisotropy with his study of Finite element method. His Biomedical engineering research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Stent, Angioplasty, Cartilage and Biomechanics.

The Mechanics study combines topics in areas such as Residual stress, Stress, Boundary value problem, Nonlinear system and Isotropy. Gerhard Holzapfel has researched Constitutive equation in several fields, including Finite strain theory and Classical mechanics. His research in Elasticity and Fiber are components of Composite material.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Finite element method (34.12%)
  • Biomedical engineering (31.01%)
  • Mechanics (23.74%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Finite element method (34.12%)
  • Mechanics (23.74%)
  • Biomedical engineering (31.01%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of study are Finite element method, Mechanics, Biomedical engineering, Constitutive equation and Anisotropy. His research in Finite element method intersects with topics in Discretization, Stress and Viscoelasticity. His Mechanics study incorporates themes from Biomechanics, Fiber, Rate dependent, Boundary value problem and Invariant.

His studies in Biomedical engineering integrate themes in fields like Mitral valve, Heart valve, Tendon and Uniaxial tension. The study incorporates disciplines such as Isotropy, Plane stress, Stiffness and Stiffening in addition to Constitutive equation. His Anisotropy study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Fibre dispersion, Compressibility, Composite material, Fracture mechanics and Composite laminates.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Fifty Shades of Brain: A Review on the Mechanical Testing and Modeling of Brain Tissue (47 citations)
  • Numerical aspects of anisotropic failure in soft biological tissues favor energy-based criteria: A rate-dependent anisotropic crack phase-field model (39 citations)
  • On fibre dispersion modelling of soft biological tissues: a review. (29 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Composite material
  • Surgery

His primary scientific interests are in Finite element method, Mechanics, Anisotropy, Constitutive equation and Biomechanics. His Finite element method research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Stress, Composite material, Mathematical analysis and Simple shear. His Mechanics research incorporates elements of Rate dependent, Elastin, Structure tensor and Invariant.

His Anisotropy research also works with subjects such as

  • Fracture mechanics that intertwine with fields like Thoracic aorta, Evolution equation, Damage zone, Fiber orientation and Nonlinear system,
  • Artery walls which connect with Microstructure, Vascular smooth muscle and Biomedical engineering. Gerhard Holzapfel focuses mostly in the field of Constitutive equation, narrowing it down to topics relating to Dispersion and, in certain cases, Deformation, Boundary value problem, Fiber and Elasticity. His work carried out in the field of Biomechanics brings together such families of science as Adipocyte, Pathogenesis, Inflammation, Abdominal aortic aneurysm and Histology.
