You can download a report where Dr. Paul and I explored modeling the radial force characteristics of stents andd the various details associated with each type of radial force test, including the loop strap, clam shell and flat plate crush tests.

We rigorously evaluated the mechanisms involved in the different radial force measurement techniques and compared our results to three different stent designs.  Our results continue to agree with experimental observations being generated through the hard work of of the F04.30.06 sub-committees.
