In this paper, we present a bi-axial characterization of in vitro human arteries. From the full-ﬁeld experimental data obtained in inﬂation/extension tests, an inverse approach, called the virtual ﬁelds method (VFM), is used for deriving the material parameters of the tested arterial segment. The obtained results are promising and the approach can eﬀectively provide relevant values for the anisotropic hyperelastic properties of the tested sample.
