This is the second paper of a 2 part series. In the first, a theoretical framework is developed that provides 3 enhancements for the constitutive theory of biomembranes. 1) Covariance amongst response terms is minimized, 2) the pseudo-strain-energy potential is redefined so as to be measurable, and 3) the stress response is decomposed into 2 parts—a hyperelastic part plus a hypoelastic-stress-residual. This paper illustrates the experimental advantages of this novel constitutive theory via analysis of biaxial test data obtained from chemically treated bovine pericardium.
