The focus of this study is to develop a dynamic membrane inflation test to characterize the mechanical response of human corneal and scleral tissues at high rates representative of blast conditions and to model the dynamic loading conditions experienced in ocular blast injuries. Previous studies investigate the quasistatic inflation response of these tissues at pressures in the physiological range (Anderson et al. 2004, Burnstein et al. 1995, Myers et al. 2010, Voorhies 2003). Test data reveals considerable rate-dependence, as both tissues exhibit greater stiffening effects at higher rates.
