4.1.3.26 Coupled Transversely Isotropic Veronda-Westmann

This material describes a transversely isotropic Veronda-Westmann material using a fully-coupled formulation. It is define through the coupled trans-iso Veronda-Westmann material type. The following material parameters must be defined.
c1 Veronda-Westmann parameter. [P]
c2 Veronda-Westmann parameter. [ ]
c3 exponential multiplier [P]
c4 fiber scale factor [ ]
c5 fiber modulus in linear region [P]
lam_max maximum fiber straightening stretch [ ]
k bulk-like modulus [P]
The strain-energy function for this constitutive model is defined by The first two terms define the coupled Veronda-Westmann matrix response. The third term is the fiber response which is a function of the fiber stretch and is defined as in [58]. For , the following form is chosen in FEBio. where is the Jacobian of the deformation.
Example:
<material id="1" type="coupled trans-iso Veronda-Westmann">
  <c1>1</c1>
  <c2>0.1</c2>
  <c3>1</c3>
  <c4>1</c4>
  <c5>1.34</c5>
  <lam_max>1.3</lam_max>
  <k>100</k>
