Gelatin is popular tissue simulant due to their biocompatibility and hence commonly used as surrogates for soft tissue in biomedical fields. With increased focus on tissue damage from battle field, considerable effort is being placed on modeling the mechanical deformation of soft tissue under high rate loading. Systematic evaluation of properties of such surrogate materials is required at similar strain rates because studies using real tissue are always not practical.
