Uniaxial Compression Testing of Tissue-Mimicking Gel for Phantom Fabrication
A method for fabricating custom wall-less flow phantoms from tissue-mimicking gel has been established. The gel is available in five types (Gels 0-4) to mimic a variety of different tissues. Uniaxial compression testing was performed for each gel type (n=10) using an Instron 3300 at a load rate of 20 N/min until 95% strain. Raw data from mechanical testing is given for each gel type comprised of individual samples.
