Experimental setups. (a) Axial extension, radial expansion, and intraluminal deformation experiments. The upper camera was only used on the latter. (b) Structural strength experiments. For simplification, only the TA is shown in the diagrams, but the conditions were identical for the HA. Please find a more detailed description of the setup used in this set of experiments in [26].
