Abstract

The transport of fluid and solutes in cartilaginous tissue under dynamic unconfined compression was discussed. Finite element method (FEM) was used for the transportation. The effects of fixed charge density (FCD), loading frequency and loading platens on the transport of fluid, ions and neutral solutes within the cartilage were also discussed. The results show that the increase in FCD decreased the fluxes of fluid, ion and neutral solute, but increased the fluid pressure and electrical potential within the tissue.
