Response to letter to the editor: "End effects in mechanical testing of biomaterials"

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review

We appreciate the detailed response from Professor Horgan, discussing our letter to the editor concerned with end effects when mechanical testing soft tissues (Anssari-Benam et al., 2012a), and providing further insightful analysis. The concepts of end effects and characteristic decay length have indeed been well established for a long time in the context of solid mechanics, with substantial contributions from Professor Horgan, towards establishing theoretical and analytical criteria for their characterisation, as referenced in our previous publication (Anssari-Benam et al., 2012b; from Horgan (1972), Choi and Horgan (1977).
