Abstract (type = abstract)
Three finite element sub-models were generated with the intent of studying stress propagation in axons under a uniaxial tensile load. The first sub-model used purely non-affine kinematics, where the axons acted independently from the ECM. The second and third sub-models used two different representations of oligodendrocytes to study how stress distributions in the axons are affected by the addition of glial cells. The two sub-models with oligodendrocytes had higher nominal stresses in the system, but lower peak stresses – indicating that the oligodendrocytes do support axons in the extracellular matrix and distribute stresses across the entire system. All three sub-models showed high stresses in regions with high tortuosity and bending stresses between all inflection points in the axon paths. Bending stresses indicate that the system can suffer from fatigue damage if subjected to repeated tensile and/or compressive loading.
