Abstract
The goal of this study was to undertake a literature survey and evaluate material properties for human tissues, and two widely used human tissue simulants (ballistic gelatin and ballistic soap) in support of future modeling efforts. Most biological and simulant materials display non-linear time-dependant response, and may be anisotropic. References containing mechanical properties for the relevant materials were identified and summarized in a tabular format, including applicable constitutive models where available. In some cases, multiple references were quoted to provide additional background or information on the models. The materials summarized in this study are those tissues within a typical area covered by a protective vest, and capture the primary tissues in the thorax, upper abdomen and upper extremity. Although complete mechanical data and constitutive models are not available for all tissues, sufficient data exists to provide a strong basis for future modeling efforts.
