The vessel wall exhibits relatively strong nonlinear properties and undergoes a wide range of deformations. Identification of a strain energy function (SEF) is the preferred method to describe the complex nonlinear elastic properties of the vascular tissue. Once the strain energy function is known, constitutive equations can be obtained.
