Abstract

Role of intrinsic matrix viscoelasticity and tension-compression nonlinearity in the biphasic response of cartilage were studied. Conewise linear elasticity (CLE) and quasilinear viscoelasticity (QLV) theory were used. It was found that biphasic-CLE-QLV model can describe the strain-rate-dependent mechanical response of articular cartilage.
