Pointwise identification of elastic properties in nonlinear heterogeneous membranes, and application to soft tissues

Identifying the elastic properties of heterogeneous materials has long been a very challenging problem both theoretically and experimentally. When it comes to biological tissues, this task is even more difficult since biological tissues generally exhibit substantial anisotropic behavior. Moreover, i...
