Figure 4

Influence of the cap thickness and intima stiffness on the peak cap stress for the baseline geometry. Constant parameter values for the models: necrotic core thickness = 1.2 mm, intima thickness behind the necrotic core = 0.5 mm, adventitia thickness = 0.15 mm, media thickness = 0.25 mm, necrotic core angle = 30°. Peak cap stress values and the undeformed geometries of some models are attached to the associated columns. The Young's modulus (E) values for the intima: 33 kPa for soft, 500 kPa for intermediate and 1000 kPa for stiff.
