Solution to HK 5
1. The blood vessel construct is a solid. The simplest model for a viscoelastic solid that
allows an instantaneous step strain increase is the Kelvin model, i.e., the standard solid.

a) (i) For a given harmonic strain excitation (t ) = 0 cos t , assume the following
stress response
T (t ) = T
ME/BMED 4758 HW 3 Solution
The physical model of the Voight model is shown on the left. The
continuity requires both the spring and the dashpot experience
the same strain . The force balance requires

Fung 8.1
Assume the area of the intersection of the bottle is A. Then the
force balance is
P1 A = P0 A + Vg = P0 A + Ahg
then P1 P0 = gh .
