Paper Title:
Modeling the Elastic Anisotropy of Woven Hierarchical Tissues: Experimental Comparison on Biological Materials and Design of a New Class of Scaffolds
  Abstract

This paper models the elastic properties of 2-D woven hierarchical tissues, assuming an orthotropic material of warp and fill yarns at level 0. Considering matrix transformation and stiffness averaging, stiffness matrices of warp and fill yarns of the tissue at level i are employed to calculate those of the tissue at level i+1. We compare our theory with another approach from the literature on tendons and experiments on leaves performed by ourselves. The result shows the possibility of designing a new class of hierarchical 2-D scaffolds with desired elastic anisotropy, better matching the anisotropy of the biological tissues and thus maximizing the regeneration.
