De Miguel Muñoz, Pablo (author)
The rupture of atherosclerotic plaques present in vital arteries is the main trigger of fatal cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks and strokes. Plaque rupture is a mechanical failure of the fibrous plaque tissue that ensues upon large deformations of the tissue, induced by the blood pressure. Current knowledge on the rupture...

The rupture of atherosclerotic plaques in coronary and carotid arteries is the primary cause of fatal cardiovascular events. However, the rupture mechanics of the heterogeneous, highly collagenous plaque tissue, and how this is related to the tissue's fibrous structure, are not known yet. Existing pipelines to study plaque mechanics are...
