In this study, the nonlinearity of the tensile and compressive stiffness of glenohumeral joint (GHJ) cartilage and its variation with depth, direction and joint surface were examined. One hundred and twenty tensile specimens and 70 compressive plugs were prepared from five fresh-frozen human GHJs. Overall, the results demonstrate the complexity of the mechanical properties of human GHJ articular cartilage.
