Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) disease is primarily a degenerative process, where rupture occurs when stress exerted on the aortic wall exceeds its failure strength. Therefore, knowledge of both the wall stress distribution and the mechanical properties of the AAA wall is required for patient specific rupture risk estimation.
